    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...

    MICHAEL Brown’s mother has reacted with fury after a grand jury decided not to indict the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed her unarmed teenage son. “Everybody want me to be calm?” Leslie McSpadden yelled to an angry crowd after the officer, Darren Wilson, was ruled to have acted in self-defence in the August 9 shooting. “Do you know how them bullets hit my son? Ain’t nobody had to live through what I had to live through.” Ms McSpadden’s impassioned response, filmed in front of the …, appeared to contradict the family’s call for calm earlier in the day....

    The Michael Brown shooting was about race but it was not racially motivated. " a handful of folks"I watched Barack Obama inject himself into the Michael Brown grand jury news and I am confounded but not surprised. Obama had the chance to separate fact from fantasy and he did the opposite. The Michael Brown shooting was NOT racially motivated but something else was. The shooting of Michael Brown was caused by Michael Brown. The forensic evidence was that Brown's blood was present on Officer Darren Wilson's collar and his thigh. There was blood found on the outside of the police...

    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...

Strangely absent was a sense of concern over the violence, destruction, and social devolution that erupted in St Louis.

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....

    Brown is up 48.3 percent to Shaheen’s 46.8 percent in the poll of 1,132 likely voters statewide. The poll was conducted on Oct. 24, and has a margin of error of 2.91 percent. Dr. Wayne Lesperance, New England College's director of the Center for Civic Engagement, attributed Brown’s success to narrowing Shaheen’s lead among women voters. “A 1.5 percent margin is incredibly narrow and makes this race a statistical dead heat. Brown’s recent success comes from narrowing the lead Shaheen had with women to just under 5 percent,” Lesperance said. Shaheen has attempted to reignite the “war on women” rhetoric...

With approval levels hovering around record lows, Obama has spent most of his campaign-related efforts this year raising money for struggling Democrats, who risk losing control of the U.S. Senate in the November 4 midterm election. Most candidates from his party have been wary of appearing with him during their election races because...
