    Thanksgiving weekend is very traditional in my house; Thanksgiving morning we go to the Macy’s Parade (19 years running) then Friday I take my oldest into the city for shopping on black Friday. Lots of fun, shopping, dinner and a lot of daddy time. This year the specter of left wing Ferguson protestors loomed large over all of it in NYC. I was hoping not to see them on Thursday as I didn’t want the parade or my ride in or out of the city interrupted. Nothing ever materialized. I did see the video of the police stopping would be...

    Missouri Governor Jay Nixon (D) came under political fire from his Lt. Governor Peter Kinder (R) for failing to deploy the Missouri National Guard in Ferguson before rioting got out of control. Kinder appeared on Fox News Tuesday morning with Martha MacCallum and expressed strong criticism about the Governor’s lack of action and lack of communication. “You know what the difference is between an executive and a Senator or Member of Congress?” Kinder asked MacCallum. He then answered his own question stating, “You actually have to do something.” Thus began a very angry commentary by the Missouri Lt. Governor against...

    Grand jurors in Ferguson, Mo., refused to indict local police officer Darren Wilson yesterday, heroically resisting pressure from President Obama on down to lynch an innocent police officer who fought off a violent attacker. The decision is infuriating left-wingers across America because it rebuts the underlying assumption they embrace which is that white police racism caused the death of Michael Brown, a young black thug who tried to seize WilsonÂ’s gun in an attempt to do the officer harm. As fresh rioting was already underway in the St. Louis area, the decision also angered President Obama who could barely contain...

Michael Brown, an 18-year-old black man who had just finished strong-arm robbing a convenience store. Wilson pulled Brown over as he and his accomplice walked in the middle of the street; all available evidence shows that Brown then pushed himself through the driver's side window, punched Wilson, went for his gun, was shot in the hand, ran, turned around, charged Wilson, and was shot to death. But that doesn't matter....

The bulletin “stresses the importance of remaining aware of the protections afforded to all U.S. persons exercising their First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and freedom of assembly.” Within hours of the FBI issuing its bulletin, some police departments across the country issued their own internal memos urging officers to review procedures and protocols for responding to mass demonstrations.

The report says that as the chasm grew, the Seahawks decided they had to trade Harvin before things became more fractured.

    Two hundred sounds like a lot but it’s small potatoes compared to what the most avid presidential golfer racked up. Woodrow Wilson managed to damage America in all sorts of durable ways while golfing a mind-boggling estimated 1,200 rounds in just six and a half years. (He was incapacitated for the last 18 months or so of his presidency due to a major stroke.) That’s roughly 3.5 rounds a week for every week of his presidency while he was able-bodied; Obama, by comparison, has racked up a meager 0.67 rounds per week, meaning he’s out there not quite every weekend...

No charges have been filed against Officer Darren Wilson despite weeks of rioting and looting by angry blacks in Ferguson.Many of the witnesses to the shooting have turned out to be unreliable. The top “witness”, Dorian Wilson, was previously prosecuted for lying to police.

    It has been over a month since Michael Brown was shot and killed in Ferguson, Mo., and we have yet to hear the police officer's version of events. Was Officer Darren Wilson badly injured in his scuffle with Brown? Did Brown attempt to seize the officer's weapon? Did Wilson have reason to fear for his own life? None of these answers has been forthcoming, which is odd and, frankly, suspicious. There are many possible explanations for the tragic death of Brown ranging from justifiable self-defense by Wilson to bad judgment by both parties and all the way to racially motivated...

Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the District Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

    On MSNBC's The Ed Show on Monday, Missouri state senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal said that the results of a private autopsy, which were released last night, show that Michael Brown was "assassinated" by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. "I do have to tell you, looking at the autopsy report last evening, um, it looks like Michael Brown was just killed. It was an assassination, and many of the community members are waiting for this police officer to be arrested. They're waiting for a grand jury and an indictment. And so, until that happens, I still see unrest. And many of the...

    Guest post by Kristinn Taylor cnn darren wilson Is the media trying to get Ferguson police office Darren Wilson lynched? CNN broadcast a report Friday that showed the house, including the street number, of the Ferguson police officer who police say shot Mike Brown. The officer has been in hiding due to death threats since the shooting last Saturday. His name, Darren Wilson, was just released Friday morning. Another news outlet apologized for broadcasting video of Wilson’s home while others have virtually drawn a map to Wilson’s house for those bent on vengeance. Yahoo News named the community Wilson where...

    The uproar on the left over the Hobby Lobby decision has an explanation. That explanation is that we have allowed our understanding of what is meant by rights and liberties to become badly degraded. In fact, to simplify, the common understanding of rights has gotten into a condition of extreme labefactation. So to speak. The left tends to think of political rights in terms of stuff — the right to affordable housing, the right to health care, the right to contraception, and so on. Conservatives tend to think of political rights in terms of non-interference — the right to free...

    The shot that changed the world rang out on a sunny summer's morning in Southeastern Europe. No one knew then that the assassin's bullet would spell the death not just of an Austrian aristocrat but the entire global order, with four empires and millions of lives lost in a conflict on a scale never before seen.. Exactly 100 years ago Saturday, Franz Ferdinand, heir to the throne of the Austro-Hungarian empire, and his wife, Sophie, were shot at close range by a young Serbian nationalist on the streets of Sarajevo. The assassination set off a chain reaction that, barely a...

    THE PRESIDENT AND THE NEGRO August 7th, 1913 Mr. Wilson finds himself thus early in his Administration at the parting of the ways in the matter of the negro citizen. His nomination of Mr. A. E. Patterson, of Oklahoma, as Register of the Treasury, has been withdrawn at the nominee's request, and for the first time in a quarter of a century the office is to go to some one other than to a negro. Mr. Patterson asked to be allowed to withdraw because of the violent opposition of the negrophobe Southern Senators - Vardaman, Tillman, Hoke Smith, and the...

    Rep. Joe Wilson (R., S.C.) created an outcry in September 2009 when he blurted out “You lie!” at President Barack Obama while he discussed health care reform before Congress. Wilson may have been off base on the particular claim on which he challenged Obama, but it turns out he was ahead of the curve. A host of statements by Obama since his first campaign for president up through this past month have been proven to be false or completely contradictory to earlier statements. The public has caught up to Wilson, as well. Sixty-one percent of voters said in a Fox...
