    In an effort to focus some of the prior analysis, and with an understanding that this specific event has a community aspect different from traditional research, it is important to understand the social elements prior to looking at the psychology of the event itself.With that we’re going to widen the scope while narrowing the focus. Let’s start with the social elements, aided by a friend of the treehouse’s endeavors, and exposing a little of myself in the process.While many are seeking justice for Jessica, it is also part of the larger objective to insure that Jessica’s death was not...

    This is a powerful piece by Donald Joy, that originally appeared on my website ClashDaily.com, about the brutal murder/burning of Jessica Chambers. I decided to run it in place of my column because this case seems to have escaped the notice of Lame Stream Media, Al Sharpton and Eric Holder. It also seems as if various bloggers, like Mr. Joy, are more dialed in to this horrendous crime than the Barney Fifes over in Panola County, Mississippi. Herewith is Joy's column regarding this heinous murder of a 19-year-old white cheerleader. Please e-blast it and Facebook and Tweet it to everybody...

    The man who may have been one of the last people to talk with Jessica Chambers says he is being threatened, and he is being called the leader of a gang that may have been involved in Chambers' death. Jessica Chambers, a 19-year-old Panola County resident, was murdered on December 6th. She was found burning next to her car, which was also on fire. "Everybody knows me out here," said Ali Alsanai, son of the owner of the gas station where Chambers was seen pumping gas hours before she died. "Everybody likes me, I get along with everyone so they...

    Friends and family members of Jessica Chambers, the Mississippi woman who was set on fire and burned to death this week, packed a funeral chapel Saturday to remember her life — as questions remained about who killed her in such a horrible way. Deborah Sanders, the 19-year-old’s aunt, said before the service at Wells Funeral in Batesville that the support of the community following the young woman’s death has helped comfort the family, but they are desperate to find whoever killed her.

    From 1997 to 2004, Republican political strategist John Hancock was the executive director of the Missouri Republican Party. A decade after leaving that full-time role, Hancock is considering a return to the organization. This time, he wants to be chairman. Early last month, Republicans supporting Hancock’s candidacy began informally polling members of the Missouri Republican State Committee about the possibility of a run and even challenging the incumbent chairman, Ed Martin. Their findings were apparently positive, as Hancock has quietly began personally working members of the state committee.

    The Hill ^ | 11/28/14 | Alexander Bolton
    Democrats hope to take back control of the Senate in 2016, but their plans could be complicated by potential retirements. The two Democratic senators most likely to retire are Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who represent both sides of the party’s ideological spectrum. Boxer, whose fourth term expires at the end of 2016, has a paltry $149,000 in her campaign account, less than almost every other senator facing election next year. As the nation’s most populous state, California is expensive to cover with advertising. If Boxer decides to run for reelection, she would face a major fundraising...

    With a long statewide election season just complete, another – the one with the biggest ballot of them all – looms on the horizon in 2015.

    JACKSON, Miss.–It was a conference call with former Gov. Haley Barbour’s lobbying firm after last week’s election, where Politico reports Barbour referred to President Obama’s issues as “tar babies”, a term some consider racially insensitive since it refers to tar babies in Joel Chandler Harris’ “Uncle Remus” stories. Those stories were made into the movies “Song of the South” by Disney, which has since made people angry with what many perceive to be black stereotypes. Some consider Barbour to be a stereotype himself, when talking about Mississippians with a thick accent and conservative politics. Barbour said in the call that...

In recent years, the pipeline, which runs from St. James, Louisiana (the delivery hub for Light Louisiana Sweet crude) to Patoka, Illinois, has seen sharp declines in shipping volumes as midwestern refiners access the growing supply of Bakken and Canadian crude to replace expensive imports via Capline. Crude flows through the US have effectively reversed as less expensive US (primarily Bakken) and Canadian production pushes out imports delivered to the US Gulf coast. Several reversals and newly-built pipelines now...

Jeanne Sheehan is ahead of Scott Brown by 6.5 points in the current RCP average, sure. But she’s also under 50% in the aggregate polling, which is the usual rule of thumb for an incumbent in trouble. This is the sort of situation where throwing some advertisting cash into the mix could really come in handy. Of course, it’s a little late for that now – back in May the Democrats blocked out about $1...

The Mississippi GOP, in a posting on Facebook, attacked Travis Childers and Rickey Cole for taking a page from the liberal playbook – the class card. President Obama knew “hope” and “change” would not “win him a second term, so he used class envy to play on the worst instincts of his voters.” So now Childers and Cole are doing likewise, they tell us. Democrats “love playing the ‘rich versus poor’ game. That’s a great political tactic, but...

Childers is hoping the news overshadows the fact that the liberal noose of the Democrat Party remains securely tightened around his neck. Rabid McDaniel voters seized on the news, sending a tingle down their legs. Some attempted to make the leap that somehow it showed that Childers is more conservative than Thad Cochran, the Republican nominee, as if this one bit of news alone gave them the reason they needed to crossover.

Republican chances to win control of the Senate in the 2014 midterms, requiring a pickup of six seats, have taken a blow. Kansas, a state no one considered anything other than a safe hold for the party a few months ago, now appears to be slipping away. After a contentious primary resulting in a victory for the 78-year incumbent Pat Roberts over tea party challenger Milton Wolf, things have gone steadily south for Roberts. Wolf refused to close ranks and endorse Roberts. A self-funded independent, 45-year-old...
  • McDaniel files legal arguments as he looks to overturn Cochran loss

    JACKSON — A defeated Senate candidate in Mississippi is arguing that a state court judge was wrong to dismiss his lawsuit that sought to overturn his Republican primary loss to incumbent Thad Cochran. Attorneys for the tea party-backed candidate, state Sen. Chris McDaniel, filed legal arguments with the Mississippi Supreme Court late yesterday, hours before a midnight deadline. The arguments mirror what McDaniel’s attorneys had said before Judge Hollis McGehee dismissed McDaniel’s lawsuit last month — that current state law does not specify a deadline for a candidate to challenge a primary loss. McGehee had agreed with Cochran’s attorneys in...

    NATCHEZ, Miss. — Just three months ago, Rob Hill was a Methodist pastor with a burning secret. But as a swampy heat took hold one recent morning, he put on a suit, climbed into his car and headed into this river town on a mission that would have been unthinkable not long ago: promoting gay rights in rural Mississippi. It’s hardly the most audacious thing he’s done this year. In July, after 12 years in the clergy, Hill came out of the closet — not at an intimate gathering around his kitchen table, or to friends on Facebook, but at...

    JACKSON — The Mississippi Supreme Court will hear oral arguments Oct. 2 as a candidate tries to revive a lawsuit that challenged his Republican primary loss to six-term Sen. Thad Cochran. The high court has released a schedule for the appeal by state Sen. Chris McDaniel. Justices said they will handle the case quickly, as McDaniel requested. Justices gave McDaniel’s attorneys until Friday to file legal arguments in his appeal. They gave Cochran’s attorneys a Sept. 24 deadline to file arguments. The McDaniel camp must file a response to Cochran’s arguments by Sept. 26. Judge Hollis McGehee dismissed McDaniel’s lawsuit...

    TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) -- U.S. Senator Roger Wicker calls the nation's foreign policy a catastrophe. That comment comes amid concerns about Russia's aggression toward Ukraine and the takeover of neighboring countries like Georgia and Crimea. Senator Wicker says sanctions are effective, but the ones hurt the most are the Russian people. Even so, he says the majority of Russians fully support Putin. He compares Russian President Vladimir Putin to dictators such as Joseph Stalin and Adolph Hitler. "It's really a shame that we are allowing Putin to become a neo-Stalinist and to engage in the takeover of neighboring countries," said...

    A 32-year-old Marine was beaten by a group of men outside of a Mississippi restaurant after he was warned it wasn't safe for white people in the wake of the Michael Brown killing in Missouri, the serviceman's friend claims. Ralph Weems, an Iraq war veteran, was in fair condition at North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo, a hospital spokeswoman said Monday. But his brother-in-law said that Weems had undergone brain surgery. The hospital would not respond to The Associated Press regarding that claim. A 22-year-old man was busted in the beating and other arrests likely are coming soon, cops say....

    Despite progress over the last century, for black people this country has failed to ever make good on its earliest and most basic democratic protection: the 14th Amendment. When the 14th Amendment was enacted, it was meant to provide equal protection to all under the law. But if a black person can be gunned down and left in the street for over four hours with no disciplinary action taken against the government representative responsible, what does "equal protection" mean? Redeeming the promise of the 14th Amendment is as relevant today as it was when first enacted. On August 9, 2014,...
