    Nail-biter: Two days left. Maureen Faulkner's heart hasn't been completely shattered yet. Tick tick tick tick tick . . . He’s already stuck a knife in Israel’s back. He’s already turned his back on Cuban refugees. He’s in the process as we speak of burrowing his political lackeys into civil service protected jobs so Trump can’t get rid of them. He’s already perperatrated a shameless land-grab of millions of acres under the flimsy guise that the land is a “national monument.” Final Days Obama has been a dream for the left. He’s doing everything he would have done all along...

    In a move that has already sparked a backlash among law enforcement groups, President Barack Obama on Thursday appointed Debo Adegbile, a former attorney for convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, to a six-year post on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. The eight-member commission consists of four members appointed by the president and four appointed by Congress. Unfortunately, the six-year appointments are not subject to Senate confirmation.

    Orange County (New Jersey) school board officials voted Wednesday to terminate the employment of a third grade teacher who had her students write "get well" letters to a convicted cop killer. According to NJ.com, Marilyn Zuniga, a third grade teacher at Forest Street Elementary School in Orange, was suspended last month after she had her students write the letters of encouragement to Mumia Abu-Jamal, who is currently serving a life sentence for killing Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in 1981. Marilyn Zuniga's employment was terminated as part of a larger personnel restructuring agenda. By including Zuniga's termination in a larger...

    ORANGE, N.J. – A teacher in New Jersey who assigned her third-grade class to write "get well" letters to a sick inmate convicted of killing a Philadelphia police officer was suspended Friday, the school superintendent said. Orange School Superintendent Ronald Lee said in a statement that school administrators "vehemently deny" any knowledge of Marilyn Zuniga's assignment. Preliminary inquiries found that Zuniga did not seek approval from administrators nor were parents notified, Lee said. The letters were delivered to Mumia Abu-Jamal in prison following his hospitalization last month for what his family said was treatment for complications from diabetes. The former...

    October 21, 2014Law Curbs Cop Killer's 'Obscene Celebrity' By Sky News US Team Pennsylvania's governor has signed into law a measure aimed at curbing the "obscene celebrity" cultivated by convicts at the expense of victims. Governor Tom Corbett signed the bill on Tuesday near the spot where Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner was shot dead by Mumia Abu-Jamal in 1981. The measure passed with unanimous approval after Abu-Jamal delivered a pre-recorded commencement address earlier this month to graduates of Goddard College in Vermont. It allows prosecutors or crime victims to seek an injunction when an offender's conduct "perpetuates the continuing...

    Convicted Philadelphia cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal has been selected as the commencement speaker for a Vermont college. Goddard College announced that the infamous inmate will address its graduates at Sunday's ceremony. Undergraduate students receiving their degrees selected Abu-Jamal as their commencement speaker, the Plainfield, Vt., school said. Abu-Jamal was convicted in the 1981 slaying of Officer Daniel Faulkner and sentenced to death. The high-profile and long-running case was in the news for decades as Abu-Jamal fought the death penalty; the sentence was later reduced to life in prison without parole. Goddard said Abu-Jamal's speech was prerecorded by Prison Radio. The...

    Why was the Senate vote to not confirm Debo Adegbile a surprise? Because it was about politics, not about Adegbile. To be specific, 46 of 54 Democrats in the U.S. Senate voted politics, to confirm Adegbile. That means that 46 Democrats (and one independent who caucuses with Democrats) demonstrated where there real priorities lie. And it means that seven Democrats voted their consciences. If ever proof that Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) are political hacks was needed, this is it. The Senate, by a 47-52 vote (8 Democrats joined 44 Republicans - Reid's...
