    Two cases of anti-Semitic harassment were reported in London earlier this week, with groups of men threatening Jews and hurling vile insults. Both incidents occurred on Monday in the neighborhood of Newham. In the first instance, a haredi family walking down the street was accosted by a man of African descent, who cursed them and demanded they leave the area. “F---ing Jews, go back to Isra-Hell. Don’t come around here. Go to Stamford Hill [a neighborhood with a large Jewish population], you’re not welcome.” Later that day, a 31-year old Jewish man was harangued by a group of men in...

    Question for Cokie Roberts and Joe Scarborough: does the name Hillary Clinton ring a bell? On today’s Morning Joe, NPR’s Roberts and Scarborough proclaimed Donald Trump “morally tainted.” Roberts took it one step further, also declaring “morally tainted” those who support Trump. Scarborough asked Roberts whether she’d ever seen “a candidate so morally tainted, so challenged that people are calling him a racist and calling him a con man, at the same time saying we support him?” Roberts said no one has ever seen anything like this, and for good measure, citing her roots growing up in the Jim Crow...

    The Amish don’t read Donald Trump’s tweets and can’t watch his television appearances, and voting is practically against their religion. But that’s not stopping a group of Trump allies with ties to Ben Carson and Newt Gingrich from mounting a campaign to turn them out anyway. Amish PAC was started by an alum of a pro-Carson super PAC, an ex-Amish donor to that super PAC and an employee of Gingrich Productions. The group is planning to mount an old-fashioned, billboards-and-newspaper-ads effort this summer, designed to encourage Amish people in Pennsylvania and Ohio to turn out for Trump in November....

    (CNN)An Ohio grand jury has decided not to return an indictment in the 2014 police shooting death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, prosecutor Tim McGinty said Monday. Rice was holding a pellet gun when he was shot. It was "reasonable" to believe that the officer who killed the boy was facing a threat, McGinty said. The officer was in training outside a Cleveland recreation center in November 2014. The shooting sparked controversy given Tamir's age and the fact that he had a gun that resembled a handgun. McGinty called Rice's killing an "absolute tragedy." "But it was not, by the law...

Andrew Hertzler argues in a suit filed Friday in U.S. Middle District Court that the requirement violates his religious freedom and his constitutional right to possess a firearm. Hertzler said his beliefs as a member of an Amish community in Lancaster County bar photographs being taken of him, but he was prohibited from buying a gun in June for self-defense purposes.

    Bullets spraying from a suspected gang-related beef outside Fenway Park early yesterday morning wounded two women at a popular meet-up corner, broke glass at the entrance to the Red Sox ticket office and punched a baseball-size hole in a window at Boston Beer Works. “The bullet went in there. We have no idea where the bullet went,” Boston Beer Works general manager Dan Quintino told the Herald as he carefully peeled back the duct tape temporarily patching the damage just above his head. Shattered glass littered the floor at the base of a large beer vat overlooking Brookline Avenue.

    A black criminal resists or attacks a white cop or a mostly non-black watchman, and dies as a result, and the whole country spins wildly into paroxysms of hysteria. Orgies of non-stop rioting and looting commence. Police departments and municipal governments enact emergency measures, costing taxpayers millions upon millions of dollars. Lawyers, politicians, and officials hustle to the microphones. Reporters, analysts, and pundits go into hyper-drive. Businesses burn to the ground. Entire city blocks explode in flames and mayhem and murder. The federal government doles out mountains of cash for leftist community agitators to go in and egg on the...

    ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Police arrested 56 demonstrators attempting to enter the federal courthouse in downtown St. Louis as part of a day of civil disobedience marking one year since Michael Brown’s death. Those arrested were part of a larger group of some 200 protesters who blocked traffic as they marched through the heart of downtown chanting, “Black lives matter,” and, “The whole world’s watching.” Many of those arrested are clergy, and the tone of the arrests – on both sides- was measured. Police told the crowd to disperse, and when they didn’t, the group that had hopped over a...
