    Late at night this month, the pastor’s phone beeped with a text message from an anguished parishioner. Andre Taylor, the church member’s great-nephew, had been shot and killed. “Dre had just turned 16,” the message on the Rev. Ira Acree’s phone read. “I think that it’s time to call for action and solicit help, have the National Guard to take over and patrol the Chicago streets.” Four days earlier, another text had appeared. A different parishioner’s granddaughter, Daysha Wright, a 21-year-old nursing student, had been shot to death in a car, leaving a 2-year-old son. At his desk at Greater...

    The Washington Post ^ | 12/30/2015 | Scott Higham and Manuel Roig-Franzia
    When Marco Rubio was majority whip of the Florida House of Representatives, he used his official position to urge state regulators to grant a real estate license to his brother-in-law, a convicted cocaine trafficker who had been released from prison 20 months earlier, according to records obtained by The Washington Post. In July 2002, Rubio sent a letter on his official statehouse stationery to the Florida Division of Real Estate, recommending Orlando Cicilia "for licensure without reservation." The letter, obtained by The Washington Post under the Florida Public Records Act, offers a glimpse of Rubio using his growing political power...

    Above is the iconic picture we’ve been become accustomed to seeing everywhere in the media, used to represent the recent Trayvon Martin shooting in Sanford, Florida. From everything the public has been told, Trayvon Martin was a fresh-faced, innocent looking teenager and the visage of the man who shot him, George Zimmerman, is right out of a booking photo. The media narrative being sold is quite clear, Trayvon Martin is the innocent victim here and George Zimmerman is a horrible bigot who attacked the young man for doing nothing more than buying skittles while being black.

    A Manhattan appeals court today shot down orders that imposed outside monitoring on two out-of-state gun dealers accused of having "New Yorkers' blood on their hands." The U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals said "several portions" of the 2009 injunctions against Mickalis Pawn Shop and Adventure Outdoors were "insufficiently specific or overbroad" and ordered "further proceedings" to make them comply with federal rules. The decision noted that the Brooklyn federal court orders prohibit not only illegal "straw purchases" of firearms, "but other, unidentified types of sales practices as well." "An injunction is overbroad when it seeks to restrain the defendants...

That policy allowed Washington to support the European diplomatic initiative toward Iran without fear of being blamed for sabotaging negotiations by threatening the regime’s existence....
