    Marc Lamont Hill Calls Obama ‘Murderer’ After Asking Media To Stop ‘Language Of Violence’by Frances Martel | 7:36 pm, January 12th, 2011 The political rhetoric debate that has arisen in light of the likely schizophrenia-induced Arizona massacre this weekend has led to a whole lot of line-drawing on what media personalities can and cannot say. That doesn’t mean that some haven’t been immediately– and egregiously– crossing them. Take Columbia University professor Marc Lamont Hill, who called for rhetoric to be toned down nearly in the same breath as calling Barack Obama a “murderer.” **SNIP** After protesting that he has done...

    The City Paper Nashville, TN ^ | Monday, November 29, 2010 at 5:17pm | Jeff Woods
    The Tennessee State Supreme Court acted Monday to stop the executions of four inmates, including one set for Tuesday, to consider whether prison officials have found a way to carry out lethal injections humanely. The court gave Davidson County Chancellor Claudia Bonnyman 90 days to rule on the constitutionality of the state’s new lethal injection procedure. The ruling came hours after lawyers for condemned double-killer Stephen Michael West asked the court to stop his execution Tuesday (read article here). They argued prison officials have failed to ensure he won’t suffer horrific pain as he suffocates on the gurney in the...

    A key intelligence report that could aid accused Fort Hood shooter Major Nidal Hasan's defense was being withheld by the Obama administration, Fox News Channel reported late Friday. The letter, dated Oct. 19, was sent by the general counsel for the national intelligence director -- the nation’s top intelligence official -- to the chief army prosecutor, Col. Michael Mulligan. It stated that the intelligence review requested by President Obama immediately after the shooting last year “is not reasonably available.” Robert S. Litt, general counsel for Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper, cited “highly classified, compartmented and sensitive information originating...

    The state of Arizona executed a convicted murderer on Tuesday night despite objections from attorneys that the state would use a non-approved drug from overseas for the lethal injection. Just hours before Jeffrey Landrigan's death, the Supreme Court voted 5-4 to lift a stay issued by a federal judge to halt the execution. "There is no evidence in the record to suggest that the drug obtained from a foreign source is unsafe," the Supreme Court said Due to a U.S. shortage, the state turned to a non-FDA approved drug. It was later revealed that the source was the U.K., although...

    Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan deserves the death penalty for perpetrating the Nov. 5, 2009, Fort Hood massacre. He has earned this penalty not only for the scale of his crime - the worst domestic attack on a military installation in American history, killing 13 and wounding 32 - but also for the purposeful way he planned and executed the assault, his jihadist motives and for the fundamental betrayal of the trust placed in him as an officer in the United States Army. Witness testimony at the ongoing Article 32 hearings in a military court at Fort Hood paints a...

    Last year, the U.K. Guardian interviewed Oscar-winning actor Benicio del Toro regarding his Cannes-winning role as Che Guevara in Stephen Soderbergh's movie Che. "Dammit This Guy Is Cool!" was the interview title. "I hear of this guy, and he's got a cool name, Che Guevara!" says del Toro. "Groovy name, groovy man, groovy politics! So I came across a picture of Che, smiling, in fatigues, [and] I thought, 'Dammit, this guy is cool-looking!'" Well, there you have it. In effect, Benicio del Toro, who fulfilled an obvious fantasy by starring as Che Guevara in the four-and-a-half-hour movie he also co-produced,...

    I want to see the whole thing. Every American should demand to see the whole damned thing. And then you need to demand to know the names of every higher-ups in the military and the government who read or saw this thing and did nothing about it. I’m talking about the chilling slide presentation that Fort Hood jihadist Nidal Hasan gave at Walter Reed Hospital while a senior-year psych resident in June 2007. The Washington Post publishes details of the slide presentation, though not the original document itself. [Update: Good! WaPo publishes the full slide presentation here.] Goodbye, “Do no...

    For many, the name Chappaquiddick conjures images of a drunken Sen. Edward Kennedy hitting on Mary Jo Kopechne in his Oldsmobile, losing control, and plunging into the water of Poucha Pond on Chappaquiddick Island, adjacent to Martha's Vineyard where President Obama was vacationing. Kopechne, a family friend, drowned; and Teddy fumbled for excuses about what happened. Now, a year after Kennedy died, his lifelong biographer Burton Hersh, armed with fresh interviews with Kennedy's mistress at the time, tells Whispers that the whole July 1969 episode should have been handled as a simple crash, leaving the senator's legacy untainted. "It was...

    A prison guard doing routine checks found a 70-year-old San Quentin inmate dead in his death row cell early Saturday, prison officials said. George Hatton Smithey apparently hanged himself with his bed sheets, Lt. Sam Robinson said. Smithey had been on death row since July 1989 for the 1988 murder and attempted rape of Cheryl Anne Nesler during the commission of an armed robbery and burglary, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said in a statement. Earlier this week a Calaveras County Superior Court judge reduced Smithey's sentence to life without the possibility of parole after prosecutors determined he...

    A Brooklyn brute who wounded a 2-year-old girl during a vicious gunfight was murdered yesterday — less than two weeks after he was sprung from the clink without bail.

Yesterday, Carmona was found shot three times — twice in the chest and once in the neck — around 3:15 p.m. on West 32nd Street and Mermaid Avenue. The slaying...

    Joseph Paul Franklin awaits his date with death. ​Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster is tired of Joseph Paul Franklin, the white supremacist and serial killer who claimed responsibility for shooting Hustler publisher Larry Flynt, breathing his state's air. Koster wants the Missouri Supreme Court to set an execution date for Franklin now that the U.S. Supreme Court has kicked out Clemons v. Crawford. The man who claims he and paralyzed Larry Flynt is on death row in Missouri. ​"Today's decision clears up any lingering ambiguities related to the constitutionality of Missouri's death penalty protocols," Koster said today in a...

    Lehi resident John Rockwell has a last name that's either famous or infamous. It depends on who you ask. Rockwell is the great-great-grandson of Old West icon Orrin Porter Rockwell, who died at age 65 132 years ago this month. Porter Rockwell is known for being the lifelong friend and, as an adult, the personal bodyguard, of LDS Church founder Joseph Smith. Or his detractors might tell you that he's known for being a dissolute, murderous, lawless gunslinger. Because Porter Rockwell never learned to read or write, his story was being told in other people's words even before he'd died....

    NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) -- Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel lost his bid for a new trial in the 1975 slaying of his 15-year-old neighbor when the state Supreme Court on Monday rejected his appeal that cited a claim implicating two other men. The court ruled 4-1 against Skakel's request. Skakel - a nephew of Robert Kennedy's widow, Ethel - was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison in 2002 for fatally beating Martha Moxley with a golf club in 1975 in a wealthy Connecticut suburb

    Few adults may know it, but kids across the country are about to celebrate a holiday: Earth Day, which is April 22. Schools will take a break from normal instruction to discuss the importance of preserving the environment. That may sound like a harmless activity, but too often Earth Day becomes a platform for pushing an ideological brand of environmentalism. Parents need to pay attention and ask their children's teachers what's their plans are for Earth Day. Unlike most holidays, Earth Day expressly focuses on youth. No gifts will be exchanged and no Easter Bunny will deliver jelly beans in...

    THIS is the teenage "Black Widow" suicide bomber thought to be responsible for this week's Russian underground bombings posing with her dead militant rebel husband. The baby-faced bomber was named as Dzhennet Abdurakhmanova, a 17-year-old widow of a Dagestani Islamist rebel killed in 2009, Umalat Magomedov, Russian media reported. A Russian newspaper published the chilling photograph of Abdurakhmanova in an Islamic headscarf with Magomedov. Both are posing casually with pistols.
