    In a sympathetic profile just before his resignation, Politico said Eric Holder's biggest legacy may be "his quiet dismantling of the War on Drugs...." How he could have "accomplished" this without legislative authority from Congress – which is supposed to make and pass laws – is never really explained. He was an Attorney General described by President Barack Obama as "the people's lawyer." Anybody familiar with Marxist jargon knew exactly what Obama meant. At home and abroad, the Obama administration distributed weapons to America's enemies. Holder's area of expertise was facilitating weapons shipments to Mexican drug cartels, in a...

    EAST STROUDSBURG Pa. (Reuters) - The manhunt for the suspect in the ambush that killed a Pennsylvania trooper and wounded another won't stop the opening of deer-hunting season in the Pocono Mountains, one of most prized spots in the Northeast for game, authorities said on Monday. Beginning Saturday, bow hunters can enter the deep woods of the region even if the search for the suspect, Eric Frein, is still under way, more than three weeks after the September 12 shooting. Since then, hundreds of officers, supported by armored vehicles and helicopters, have combed the forests of northeastern Pennsylvania looking for...

Twenty-two states have followed Oklahoma’s lead.

While police in Moore, Okla., have called Mr. Vaughan’s actions heroic, it’s also true that in some parts of the US he could have faced employer sanctions for...

A judge approved a request by prosecutors Monday to send the drug case involving the arrest by officer Darren Wilson to a St. Louis County grand jury. But a spokesman for Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch later said that the case is "on hold" until Wilson's status is resolved. Spokesman Ed Magee called the move standard procedure in cases where police officers are not immediately available to testify in court....

The "sketchy" details of the fight in which the Palin family reportedly came to the defense of their eldest son were first spread by an anti-Palin blogger who admitted she neither had the time nor wanted to track down the facts. No need to bother, of course, when the "story" is salacious and the anti-Palin mainstream press will more than participate in the feeding frenzy if they think it will make Palin look bad....

Georgia secretary of state Brian Kemp launched the investigation of the New Georgia Project earlier this month after receiving “numerous” complaints regarding applications submitted by the group, including forged signatures and applications. The investigation has turned up 33 fraudulent applications thus far, ahead of the thousands of pages of documents set to be turned over. The group is run...

    HOUSTON, Texas -- Gangs operating in Falfurrias, Texas have allegedly been the recipient of “a massive amount” of inbound wire transfers. The transfers are believed to be extortion payments to local gang members who allegedly kidnap illegal immigrants who are found hiking through the ranches of Brooks County to avoid the Falfurrias Border Patrol checkpoint. The immigrants are then held hostage until money is wired into the gang members – usually around one to three thousand dollars. The local gang members grab up the illegal immigrants they find on the roadways or in the ranches of Brooks County,” said Congressman...

    President Obama insulted many Americans last week when he raised events in Ferguson, Missouri, during his United Nations speech. They chafed at the implied moral equivalence of a shooting still in legal dispute with the many lethal foreign threats besieging the world. While such rhetoric is divisive at home, there is another problem. The president does not seem to understand that most of the world is completely unmoved by such apologies. Most of the world does not see an earnest moralist struggling with America’s complicated past or a humble man admitting his own foibles. Instead, they see a weak leader...

Mr Salvadore was also charged with assaulting a police officer.

Because of what happened there, the brief but intense experience of state repression, its name will be transmitted by millions of Black mouths to millions of Black ears, and it will become a watchword for resistance, like Watts, like Newark, Harlem and LA. But Ferguson wasn’t 60 years ago – it’s today. And for young Blacks from Ferguson and beyond, it was a stark, vivid history lesson – and also a reality lesson. When they dared protest the state street murder of one...

The funding for lawyers for the illegal alien minors comes amidst a nationwide push by outgoing U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to recruit legal talent to represent the children and teenagers--who often cross the U.S.-Mexico border unaccompanied-- against law enforcement proceedings. Holder is the nation's chief law enforcement officer. President Barack Obama and other Democrats have supported the legal recruitment effort.

In the beginning of 2014, ISIS fighters had defeated Iraqi forces in Fallujah, leading much of the U.S. intelligence community to assess they would try to take more of Iraq. ... after Obama’s interview aired, one former senior Pentagon official who worked closely on the threat posed by Sunni jihadists...

    No matter how hard the president tries to persuade the country that black people are the real victims of racial violence, black people will just not cooperate. Saturday night the resident was telling members of the Congressional Black Caucus about how police are constantly picking on black people. For no reason whatsoever. And this racial disparity means police have to change -- arresting fewer black people, for starters. Or more white people. At almost the exact moment the president was repeating this standard litany of racial grievance, two black suspects in Ferguson shot a cop. They did not appreciate it...

    The party in the new club continued into the wee hours Sunday morning. Strawberry daiquiris flowed. Music from DJ Bay Bay pulsed. Teens were chilling and dancing. Then came the gunfire. Witnesses said they heard dozens of rounds, maybe 100, rip through a storefront Miami nightclub called The Spot, wedged between a furniture store and a smoke shop. When the gunfire stopped, 15 young people were wounded, bloodied and dazed, the youngest of them 11 years old, the oldest 25. “Young people now, throughout the United States — Chicago or Miami or LA or wherever you’re at, even in small...
  • Obama: ‘Most Americans’ think nation is racist

    For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined,...

    Gross incompetence at the State Department, likely stemming from decisions by Hillary Clinton, is a primary reason why Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the Benghazi terrorist attack. A source who has asked to remain anonymous due to their proximity to the investigation, said that much of the blame for the murders rests squarely within the State Department, then under the command of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The State Department had final decision-making authority over all of the following: · The selection of the 17 February Martyrs Brigade, affiliates of terrorist organization Ansar al-Sharia, as...

    Score one for Joe Scarborough. The Morning Joe host today unleashed a tirade against the FBI for treating as a case of "workplace violence" the beheading by a fanatical Muslim convert of a fellow worker in Oklahoma. Scarborough lashed out at the FBI's political correctness in claiming that there was "no indication" that the suspect, Alton Nolen, was copying the recent ISIS beheadings. Said Scarborough: "how stupid does the FBI really think we are? Who exactly are they afraid of offending?" Political correctness, in its more innocuous manifestations, can be good fodder for humor. But when our government becomes so...

    Alton Nolen, the man who is suspected of beheading a former coworker after being fired in Oklahoma, it’s now being described by the major media as a guy who is just “a little odd.” That’s the description they got from people who worshipped at the same mosque as Nolen anyway.“A spokesman for an Oklahoma City Islamic group,” reports CBSNews, “says a man accused of beheading one woman and attacking another at a food processing plant from which he was fired was seen as ‘a little odd’ and ‘a little weird’ by those who attended the same mosque he did.”In a...

    Leroy Williamson, 93, has seen relations between the United States and Russia during good times and bad, and has some advice for the countries: "We have to get along," he told ABC News. "We don't need a patriotic war or a World War III." The Texan was in Russia this week to share his appreciation for the Soviet soldiers who liberated his Nazi prisoner-of-war camp on May 1, 1945. He met with a Russian general for lunch, visited with veterans, and placed a wreath at Moscow's memorial to the Great Patriotic War, as World War II is known in the...
