    American Thinker ^ | John T. Bennett
    How did we reach the point where the only group whose feelings need to be consulted are minorities? Liberalism. Part of liberalism is the notion that minorities need special help, attention, and heightened sensitivity. Along with that, liberalism promotes white guilt and the peculiar desire to "help people" at any cost. The result is that the media gives credence and coverage to mere feelings when real people are being attacked. Of course, the worse the violence gets, the more sensitive we'll have to be. The flash mobs and mob attacks will require the utmost sensitivity from us, as they are...

    The looting of a BP service station and subsequent attacks at nearby Reservoir Park Sunday was a troublesome event that soured the normally buoyant Fourth of July weekend and raised a number of questions. Among them: Why didn't Milwaukee police connect the dots faster? And where were the parents of these young people? Surveillance video taken from the BP service station shows clear pictures of dozens of youths stealing snacks, sodas and other merchandise. Some of them may have participated later in the beatings and robberies at the park. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said Wednesday that several parents have contacted...

    New York Times bestselling author and conservative political commentator Ann Coulter's new book, "Demonic: How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America", tackles politics once again, this time taking on the liberal left and what she describes as their "mob behavior." The Democratic Party is the party of the mob, irrespective of what the mob represents. Democrats activate mobs, depend on mobs, coddle mobs, publicize and celebrate mobs -- they are the mob. Indeed, the very idea of a "community organizer" is to stir up a mob for some political purpose. "As so frequently happens when a crowd goes wild," historian...

James "Big Louie" Tartaglione, testifying during the federal murder and racketeering trial of Vincent "Vinny Gorgeous" Basciano, said Post employee Robert Perrino was "whacked" in 1992 because Bonanno bigs feared that Perrino might cooperate with the authorities.

It was terrifying. They left the victim lying in the middle of the street. He eventually stood up and was clearly dazed as he tried to walk. Eventually someone called him to the sidewalk and he managed to stumble away. Police were called but the traffic was simply too heavy for them to be able to catch...

    Courage is the stuff that leaders are made of. Abraham Lincoln had it. Winston Churchill had it. Ronald Reagan’s “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” rebuke of communism was more than a speech read from a teleprompter. Reagan’s words were accompanied by courageous actions. Courage is an attribute of most succesful people. It’s an attribute that Barrack Obama lacks. Leadership is ultimately about getting things done. A crisis or monumental event is often required before we learn the true mettle of a leader. Such was the case with Lincoln during the Civil War, or Churchill as Britain faced the onslaught...

    Rahm Emanuel should not appear on the Feb. 22 mayoral ballot because he does not meet the residency standard, according to a ruling issued by a state appellate court today. Emanuel told a news conference he would appeal the decision to the Illinois Supreme Court and would ask for an injunction so his name will appear on the mayoral ballot. "I have no doubt at the end we'll prevail in this effort," Emanuel said. “We’ll now go to the next level to get clarity."

He said members of the mafia are “praying on vulnerable Americans” by taking money from labor groups, imposing illegal “mafia taxes” and trying to delegitimize businesses.
