    ST. LOUIS (AP) — A federal judge on Tuesday approved a settlement in the wrongful-death lawsuit filed by the parents of Michael Brown, an unarmed, black 18-year-old, whose fatal shooting by a white police officer nearly three years ago in Ferguson, Missouri, set off months of protests. Financial terms of the settlement approved by U.S. District Judge E. Richard Webber were not disclosed. Anthony Gray, the attorney for Brown's parents, declined comment, as did Ferguson Mayor James Knowles III.

The comedian pleaded not guilty. Kevin R. Steel, the district attorney from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, who brought the charges, has announced he will retry the case.

    I share the same LGBT demographic with the protesters that stood and held up “Fight Transphobia” signs, but they do not speak for me—especially as they infringe upon free speech and expression. Being part of a protected class does not give us the privilege or right to shut down speech just because we do not like what we hear. As a demographic whose cause is founded on tolerance and acceptance, we are hypocritical for supporting PC culture. What the protesters are actually doing is selfish. They are pushing their own agenda in hopes of preventing people, including a female minority...

    Now that an NFL team has righted a terrible wrong and gotten Austin Davis back into the league, it seems like a good time for some clarity about the quarterback (Colin Kaepernick) the team (Seahawks) passed over in favor of Davis. For one thing, it’s clear that neither the NFL nor its teams are all that interested in being honest about why they don’t want to sign Kaepernick this offseason. There have been pockets of honesty here and there on Kaepernick-related topics, from 49ers general manager John Lynch, Giants owner John Mara and Seahawks coach Pete Carroll himself. But the...

    Highly recommend this 3:45 video clip!!! [excellent video clip of Ambassador Bolton explaining that the real issue about the "Paris Accord" is all about the left's efforts to enact global governance over the USA and all nations. China and India (huge emitters) would not even have to begin to consider limits before 2030, but meanwhile the international bureaucrats would get their hooks deeper into the USA and every country. President Trump says NO to the global bureaucracy.]

    As the number of Muslims increase, the number of extremists increase. As the number of extremists increase, the number of terrorists increase. As the number of terrorists increase, so the word "terrorist" has to be defined down so that a beleaguered security state can refine its priorities: There's no time for your nickel'n'dime Isis recruits, brides of Isis, "Islamic Fighting Group" commanders, bomb-makers, embassy-bombing masterminds... When it's an ever more stretched net with ever more gaping holes, everyone slips through. Salman Abedi did not become a terrorist, a murderer, an "extremist", until the final moments of his life. But it's...

    .... ...The song helped. Years and years ago, at his home in Montauk, Paul Simon showed me his draft sheets for the lyrics. He was late delivering the three new pieces he'd promised (Dave Grusin wrote the orchestral score) so he told Mike Nichols he'd had an idea for a song that was a remembrance of things past - about Joe DiMaggio and whatnot. "But I don't know if the song's called 'Mrs Roosevelt' or 'Mrs Robinson'," he said. "We're making a movie here," snapped Nichols. "It's 'Mrs Robinson'." .... Their cleverest scene together is the one in which Benjamin...

    The despot, who did not speak during the annual parade, flaunted prototypes of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM), which experts fear could one day be capable of striking mainland America. One of Kim's top officials, Choe Ryong Hae, today vowed North Korea would 'beat down enemies with the power of nuclear justice'. He told the packed-out square: 'If the United States wages reckless provocation against us, our revolutionary power will instantly counter with annihilating strike, and we will respond to full-out war with full-out war and to nuclear war with our style of nuclear strike warfare.' Submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBM) were...

    "Realistically you can't win no championship with three white guys because the foot speed is too slow," LaVar told The Orange County Register on Thursday. "I told Lonzo, 'One of these games you might need to go for 30 or 40 points.' It turned out that was the one game. Then once they get to the Elite 8, they're right there." This season, UCLA started three white players: TJ Leaf, Bryce Alford, and Thomas Welsh.
