    Speaking at publicly supported Morgan State University in Baltimore, a predominantly black institution of higher learning, Nation of Islam leader Luis Farrakhan issued threats over the shooting of Michael Brown and the no true bill verdict of the grand jury investigating it. The Daily Caller reports: Farrakhan stated in his speech — given at Morgan State University, a black college located in Baltimore, Md. — that violence was justified in response to the decision not to indict officer Darren Wilson and peaceful protests are only in the interest of “white folks.” We going to die anyway. Let’s die for something,”...

    MISSION VIEJO (CBSLA.com) — A mixed martial arts fighter surrendered following an hours-long standoff with SWAT officers at his Mission Viejo home Thursday, authorities said.

When deputies tried to take Miller into custody, he ran back into his home and has refused to come out, authorities said. Miller surrendered in back of the residence and was in custody shortly after 2:10 p.m., a Sheriff’s spokesperson...

    A New Mexico woman said the Border Patrol forced her to make a decision: Be a mother or be an agent. Sophia Cruz, who worked at the agency’s station in Lordsburg, said she simply wanted to pump and store her breast milk at work. But she said her superiors violated orders from her doctor and one of the agency’s programs designed for nursing mothers. “All I wanted to do was nurse my daughter. And all I wanted to do was be a mom and an agent,” Cruz said in an interview with 4 On Your Side Investigator Ryan Luby. The...

Predictably, a statement released by the group explaining the event offers a disturbing welter of demands, anti-Americanism and victimhood: We at AMPAC are planning an historic event for 9.11.13 where one million Muslims will march to Washington D.C. and demand that our...

    FAIRFIELD, Iowa (AP) - Oprah Winfrey meditated with more than 400 women in southeastern Iowa and also talked to students about her spiritual journey. Suzanne Stryker says she was among the women participating in the transcendental meditation Wednesday at the Maharishi School in Fairfield. She says no one in the meditation group knew the TV personality was going to be there until Winfrey, who heads the OWN television network, arrived with a film crew. The private Maharishi School specializes in "consciousness-based education" for kindergarten through 12th grade.

While covering the shenanigans in Iowa this week, Tapper seized on the opportunity to finally get Palin to answer some “substantive questions,” but before Palin would face Tapper’s queries, she had priority business to take care of: “I’m gonna go meet a heifer first.” Tapper’s amused, bemused reaction was priceless. “A heifer first?” After a few minutes of milking the spotlight (setting the mooed?) at the Iowa...

Instead, the company will direct retirees to Medicare-backed insurance programs, and will provide reimbursement for that coverage. It'll also reimburse retirees who are too young for Medicare; the company didn't provide further details. The company made the changes known in a memo to employees Friday; news of the move was reported in The Wall Street Journal and confirmed Monday by 3M spokeswoman Jackie Berry. In its memo, the company said the new health-reform act would create new opportunities for...

    WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has reopened a long-running feud with Fox News Channel, branding the conservative U.S. cable network as "ultimately destructive for the long-term growth" of the United States. In an interview published Tuesday by Rolling Stone magazine, Obama took specific aim at Fox's Australian-born chairman and chief executive, accusing Rupert Murdoch of being more concerned about generating profits than promoting an agenda to improve America's well-being. The U.S. president likened Murdoch to William Randolph Hearst, the newspaper baron whose sensational publications produced the term 'yellow' journalism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

    Yesterday, on Sunday, September 19, 2010, the Obama family attended church for only the third time in a year. They went on foot to the St. John’s Episcopal Church situated across the Lafayette Park. But what is widely not reported by the White House and the MSM is that on that particular Sunday in that particular church, Dr. Ziad Asali, M.D., a Muslim, founder and president of the American Task Force on Palestine, was the guest speaker. He was there to speak on the subject of “Prospects of the two-state solution in the Middle-East.” According to the website of the...

    President Barack Obama’s past continues to haunt him. A friend e-mailed me this revealing post by Bishop E.W. Jackson Sr., pastor of The Exodus Faith Ministries in Chesapeake, Virginia. Bishop Jackson wrote it last June, but I have not seen it circulated or mentioned before now. Now, someone found it and put it on their own blog. Like so many of us, Bishop Jackson describes himself as once a leftist Democrat; an African-American who grew up in a black urban community in Pennsylvania, and a man who is disturbed about what he calls “a strain of anti-Semitism in the black...

    Last year around this time, the left was predicting an omnipotent presidency that would usher in a new way of "being" on the planet. It has turned out to be a wilting and amateurish one, full of commonplace follies and tired initiatives. The party-crasher story is emblematic of Obama's already diminished presidency. The most recent report about the party crashers adds a new layer to the farce: the party crashers can actually claim plausible and encouraging interactions with a "Pentagon official." ABC casts the story in terms favorable to the White House: "E-Mails Show Salahis Never Got White House State...

The skull, which had been found in a box marked “Mountain Meadows” in an Idaho pawn shop in February, had what was thought to be a bullet hole in it. There was speculation that the skull was that of a victim of the Mountain Meadows massacre, a September 1857 event in which about 120 men, women and children, mostly emigrants from Arkansas, were killed in Utah. According to Phil Bolinger and Jake Fancher, it has been determined that the skull is that of a Vietnamese female. Bolinger and Fancher...

But the very production of "Islam vs. Islamists: Voices From the Muslim Center" has highlighted sharply different views about the state of Islam in the United States and showcased how intensely sensitive that subject remains. PBS, which commissioned the project, is delaying airing the film after protests that it is anti-Muslim. Now its creators are launching a public campaign against PBS to get it shown.

    Seething at what they consider racist slurs against African-Americans displaced by Hurricane Katrina, activists here Friday took verbal aim at gubernatorial candidate Kinky Friedman and west Houston residents who last week urged city officials to send evacuees back home. "The nerve of the white man to talk about shipping anyone anywhere," Houston activist Quanell X told a small group of reporters and the public Friday at a Texas Southern University news conference. "This is disgraceful." His comments came as local and New Orleans activists gathered in Houston to craft a response to the comments, which they said smeared the estimated...

    Fellow Americans, there comes a time every mans life when we must give up ourselves before we are worthy to recieve. There comes a time in this war on terror when in order to protect liberty, we have to give it up in the mean time for safty. That's right folks. Today, Americans have forsaken the creator for the creation and have decided that they would value our "civil liberties" than protecting western civilization and rich white people from the tender mercies of radical Islamic terrorists. Selfish liberals insist and whine that Bush has no right to spy on Americans...

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short. The national Bureau of Economic Research has identified...

    After reading all of the crap that people have been saying regarding Adult Private Social Clubs, I felt that I had to post an article and give my opinion. I am sick and tired of all the religous groups that are saying that there are drugs, prostitution, minors, non-consenting people, and just immoral people at these clubs! First of all, who do these people think they are to decide what is morally right or wrong for me? I believe that I have a good set of morals. I am a law abiding, tax paying citizen, I work full time and...

    I've grown up in Oklahoma and went through Boy Scouts (am an Eagle Scout) learning to shoot various types of firearms but haven't even touched one in 5+ years. Now that I'm about to leave college I'm thinking of getting a firearm of some kinda but don't know where to start. What should I be looking at and why?

    Whatever did happen to Kweisi Mfume? You remember Kweisi, that one-time Baltimore youth hell-raiser who sired five children out of wedlock – but who reformed himself enough to get elected to Congress and then president of the NAACP. He is currently running for the Democratic nomination for U.S. senator from Maryland. So what did Kweisi do on Saturday, Oct. 15? Well, he enlisted as one of the speakers at Louis Farrakhan's "Millions More Movement" event – the 10th anniversary of the (alleged) "Million Man March," which never reached anywhere near that number, then or on the 15th. The Washington Post...

    "A decree of death has been passed on America. The judgment of God has been rendered and she must be destroyed..."Louis Farrakhan - 1997 Louis Farrakhan is at it again. With the “Millions More Movement” he has catapulted himself back into the media spotlight in a manner that must make Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton green with envy. One thing that doesn’t get a lot of mention, although most Americans are certainly aware of it, is the fact that Farrakhan isn’t just another “Liberal Black Leader Wannabe.” Farrakhan is the leader of the American Islamic movement, The Nation of Islam....
