    The pictures are dark and ominous, the charges chilling: “There exists a network of extremists . . . [who] spew venomous rhetoric, outrageous theories, and discredited science.” Just who are these evil people and what are they doing? According to the Human Rights Campaign, the world’s largest gay activist organization, this “network” consists of American, conservative Christian leaders “who are working tirelessly to undercut LGBT people around the world at every turn.”I have made it onto this list – unfortunately, only with a “dishonorable mention” – adding to my already impressive résumé of being marked by groups like GLAAD, which...

    A Cobb County police lieutenant has been moved to administrative duty after dash-cam footage appeared to show the officer telling a driver, “Remember, we only kill black people.” Lieutenant Greg Abbot pulled over a driver for a DUI check. When he asked her to grab her cellphone, she told him she was nervous about moving her hands, because she had “just seen way too many videos,” reported Channel 2 Action News. Abbot then responded, “But, you’re not black. Remember, we only shoot black people. We only kill black people, right? All the videos you’ve seen, have you seen the black...

    (Reuters) - The White House lawyer brought in to deal with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election said he believed the focus of the probe was "narrow" and the aspects related to President Donald Trump should be completed before the end of the year. The lawyer, Ty Cobb, who joined the White House staff on July 31, made the comments in interviews with Reuters on Tuesday and Wednesday. He declined to provide specifics backing his outlook, which contradicts media reports that the scope of Mueller’s probe is expanding and the views of several outside...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzbJn2UAoIs He was Major League Baseball's first superstar. The first man ever inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. And he still has the game's highest career batting average – .366 – almost 90 years after he retired. His name is Ty Cobb. Yet, despite his historic achievements, he is often remembered for being the worst racist and the dirtiest player ever to take the field. If you know baseball, you've heard the stories: Ty Cobb would pistol-whip black men he passed on the street. He once stabbed to death a black waiter in Cleveland just because the young man...

    Ty Cobb was one of the greatest baseball players of all time and king of the so-called Deadball Era. He played in the major leagues—mostly for the Detroit Tigers but a bit for the Philadelphia Athletics—from 1905 to 1928, and was the first player ever voted into the Hall of Fame. His lifetime batting average of .366 is amazing, and has never been equaled. But for all that, most Americans think of him first as an awful person—a racist and a low-down cheat who thought nothing of injuring his fellow players just to gain another base or score a run....

    COBB COUNTY, Ga. — Cobb County is telling a Kennesaw family to apply for permission to park their kids' cars in their own driveway. The Oviedo family got a notice of violation for having four cars in the driveway. The family has relatives visiting and two kids home from college. "I am angry. I am beyond angry. I don't see how the government can tell me whose cars I can park in my own driveway," said Kim Oviedo. They got a visit Friday from code enforcement, acting on an anonymous complaint. The neighborhood is zoned an Open Space Community. A...

    The Weekly Standard ^ | Jun 22, 2015 | GEOFFREY NORMAN
    Among the entries in a 1999 anthology called The Best American Sports Writing of the Century is a profile of Ty Cobb (1886-1961). It was originally published in True magazine the year of Cobb’s death. The writer, Al Stump, recalls the last, bleak days of the great ballplayer’s life and makes him into a bitter, violent, alcoholic monster. In one passage, he describes a visit to the graveyard in the town of Royston, Georgia, where Cobb had grown up. Cobb wanted Stump, who was ghostwriting his autobiography, to go with him, on Christmas Eve, to see where he would soon...

    Garry Cobb played football for USC and then for 11 years with the Philadelphia Eagles. He is now running for New Jersey’s 1st District seat as a Republican, and his explanation of why he is no longer a Democrat is very compelling. Explaining that he kind of discovered that he was Republican due to his upbringing, he said that the massively negative effects of Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty had the most impact: This was an incentive for the man to leave the home and it’s destroyed African-American families throughout the country. I didn’t realize it but as I started...
  • VA TEA PARTY OUSTS KEY CANTOR ALLY ON HIS HOME TURF

    On Saturday, Tea Party activists ousted a top ally of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) from a key Virginia chairmanship in Cantor's own district, underscoring discontent Cantor is facing from conservative activists at home. Conservatives mobilized against Linwood Cobb – the powerful, incumbent 7th district GOP Chair who was working with Cantor's top establishment consultants and political action committees to take power away from grassroots delegates – to elect Fred Gruber to the chairmanship. The victory was surprising because Cantor's district, in the state capital of Richmond, is home to much of the GOP establishment machinery that wards off...

Eric Cantor a rough "welcome" in his own district -- sending a message that the House GOP leadership would be wise to heed before they hand Barack Obama a victory on "immigration reform". Cantor (R-Va.), the House Majority Leader was "heckled and booed" by conservatives and Tea Party activists at the 7th Congressional District Convention held in Richmond Saturday.  — and that wasn’t even the worst of it.

    The prospect of gently dozing off while taunting victims right-to-the-end is hardly an effective deterrent... The death penalty is currently a legal sentence in 33 American states and in the federal civilian and military legal systems. Lethal injection has become the most common method of capital punishment utilized since SCOTUS re-enstated the death penalty in 1976, popularity owed to the theory it's the most 'humane' method available... but humane to whom? Not society, the victims, nor their families, that's for sure... Case-in-point being yesterday's execution of Richard Cobb (29) in Texas: he and his crime partner Beunka Adams (righteously executed April 2012) went on...

    Republicans seized another Democratic seat in the state House tonight in the special election to succeed Rep. Curt Cobb. Trucking company owner Pat Marsh beat Cobb's brother, Ty, handily by a vote of 4,931 to 3,663. That gives Republicans a 51-48 advantage in the House and makes it that much harder for Tennessee's beleaguered Democrats to return to power in the high-stakes 2010 elections. Democrats poured everything they had into this race to hold this seat. Many observers described the election as a bellwether for 2010, a strong indication of just how much Barack Obama's unpopularity here might hurt Democrats...
