    Participants in the Justice For All March on Dec. 13, 2014 in Washington, DC.A week ago, the NAN offices were busy with activity. We were planning for the Justice For All March that took place on December 13. The march was successful and turned out exponentially more people than we anticipated – some estimates say approximately 40,000. But more importantly, we had the families of Eric Garner, Mike Brown, John Crawford, Tamir Rice, Akai Gurley, Trayvon Martin and Amadou Diallo present. These families know the unfortunate realities of a justice system that may be blindfolded, but seems to always peek...

    Four down, two to go. A fourth suspect wanted for allegedly assaulting police officers during last weekend’s Millions March NYC protests surrendered to cops Saturday afternoon, just hours after a fellow cop-basher did the same, authorities said.

    When I was in college, I was treated to a fascinating display of hypnosis. At a large university, in an enormous theater, a hypnotist first determined those attendees who were susceptible to hypnosis. Those of us who were not then watched as the hypnotist introduced a trigger word into the subconscious of those under his influence, at the mention of which they would engage in whatever activity he directed. He woke them up, and each time he used the word, they went under the spell, he told them what they would do when they woke up, and we watched as...

    A German federal agency has acknowledged in a report Wednesday that a cyberattack caused physical damage to an iron plant in the country. It was a rare admission by a government tying a cyber action to actual physical destruction. The attackers gained access to an unnamed plant’s office network through a targeted malicious email and were ultimately able to cross over into the production network. The plant’s control systems were breached which “resulted in an incident where a furnace could not be shut down in the regular way and the furnace was in an undefined condition which resulted in massive...

    Blame Game: Sony Corp., having already taken a massive hit from North Korea's hack job, is now being attacked at home as a coward for canceling "The Interview." But what else was it supposed to do? [Snip] Hollywood is all too willing to cave under pressure from politically correct interest groups — without anyone ever raising an eyebrow.

What does that say about the administration's national security abilities?

The President from ACORN President’s Political Junkets Continue Unabated It has become a tiresome, tedious – and costly – routine.

    The US corrections population dropped to its lowest point since 2003, US Attorney General Eric Holder announced Friday. The number of Americans in prison, jail, parole, or probation dropped to less than 6.9 million in 2013, down 41,500 compared to 2012 and hitting the lowest point since 2003, according to a report from the Bureau of Justice Statistics. Until 2008, the corrections population had been steadily growing for decades as all levels of government enforced tough-on-crime policies — particularly against drug offenses — that tied up more people in the criminal justice system. But states and the federal government, facing...

    In the end, making a political issue personal might have done in Assemblywoman Michele Fiore. The Las Vegas Republican was coming off a tumultuous week — she’d been deposed and then quickly restored as majority leader-designate and chairwoman of the Assembly Taxation Committee by Speaker-designate John Hambrick, R-Las Vegas — when she doubled down on allegations that certain Republican forces were targeting her and other conservatives. Speaking on the Alan Stock radio show on KDWN-AM 720 on Tuesday, Fiore not only repeated her rhetoric about a “war on women,” but blamed some of the alleged infantrymen in that conflict: Republican...
