    The best friend of Gavin Long, aka Cosmo Setepenra, tells how a Marine became a sovereign citizen and, eventually, a mass murderer. Before he killed three Baton Rouge cops, Gavin Long drove to Dallas one day after a black veteran like him slaughtered five white police officers. Once there, he recorded himself preaching a message for black men: It’s time to wake up. Long visited two barbershops with a stack of self-published tomes and a camera clipped to his shirt to record his proselytizing. “I want to give you something that you can’t lose, something they can’t take from you,”...

    Before someone says President Obama did no such thing and that Baton Rouge, like Dallas, cannot be laid at his doorstep, let us consider his own statement that “words have consequences”. From Ferguson to Baltimore and beyond President Obama’s words have been the equivalent of yelling “fire” in a crowded theatre. He has encouraged a false narrative of racist cops and racist police departments whose officers are guilty until proven innocent, or buried, whichever comes first. If there is a Pearl Harbor in this war on cops, it was Ferguson, Missouri, where President Obama’s Justice Department sent 40 FBI agents...

    Confronting another killing of police officers, President Barack Obama on Sunday urged Americans to tamp down inflammatory words and actions as a violent summer collides with the nation’s heated presidential campaign. Obama said the motive behind Sunday’s killing of three officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was still unknown. It was the latest in a string of deadly incidents involving law enforcement, including the police shooting of a black man in Baton Rouge and the killing of five officers in Dallas. “We as a nation have to be loud and clear that nothing justifies attacks on law enforcement,” Obama said in...

    Curtis Gatewood is currently the field director of the North Carolina NAACP. He has described the killing of mass murderer Micah X. Johnson by the Dallas Police as a ‘lynching’: Make no mistake, by taking this Black ‘suspect’ and demonizing and using a killer robot to blow him up in this unprecedented and barbaric manner and without a trial in a court of law is the truest and most literal example yet of a high-tech lynching. In the period 1882 through 1964, according to the archives at the Tuskegee Institute, 4,742 American citizens were lynched. Each and every one was...

    When it comes to the linkage between violence and rhetoric, I abide by a fairly simple rule: If you’re not advocating violence, you’re not responsible for violence. […] President Barack Obama also abides by a simple rule when it comes to linking violence and rhetoric: If he doesn’t like the rhetoric, it’s responsible for violence. And if there’s violence associated with rhetoric he likes, then the violence must have been caused by something else. This shining double standard was on full display this week after an anti-white racist black man shot 14 police officers in Dallas just hours after Obama...

The headline was accurate, as Dallas gunman Micah Xavier Johnson explicitly talked about wanted to kill white police officers before he was eliminated via robot bomb.

Police are now less likely to harass or arrest peaceful open carriers. The doomsayers who rail against open carry make numerous nonsensical claims.  Primary of them is that open carriers will be shot first by criminals.  They also claim that open carriers are likely to be shot by police. Supporters of open carry claim that the open carry of weapons is tactical deterrence.  That is, that criminals are less likely to attack a person who...

Was it protocol or bully pulpit privilege that allowed President Barack Obama to make a speech about racism at the Memorial for five police officers shot down at the tail end of a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas?

    WASHINGTON -- Race is what you make of it. For me I have made race a part of what social scientists once called the "melting pot," by which they meant that differences -- including ethnicity and race -- were all melted down into one great variegated country called America. There might be different heritages and different sub-cultures mixed into the American melting pot, but once mixed together we were all Americans. Of course, however, through the years that American melting pot has been increasingly difficult to maintain, because various leaders -- political leaders, education leaders, social leaders and simple charlatans...

He looked young, excited, like an athlete before a game, perhaps only a few years older than my sons. And now that five police officers have been assassinated and seven other officers shot by that Dallas sniper, I wonder: Why become a cop? There's so much anger and hate out there, legitimate historical grievances and phony opportunistic shrieking and political betrayals and phony hashtag wars. And always...

The killings by police in Minnesota and Louisiana, quickly followed by the killings of police in Dallas, knocked the lazy certainty out of almost everybody. At least for a moment, antagonists on either side of polarizing issues could see beyond the epistemic horizon of their most comfortable talking points. Black Lives Matter activists thanked the police for their protection and sacrifice. Conservative Republicans, most notably House Speaker Paul Ryan and former Speaker Newt Gingrich,...

Bill Maher even blamed Fox News and the Daily Caller and the Drudge Report. But when black racist Micah Johnson gunned down five cops and wounded seven others in Dallas, suddenly the motivation was complicated, and it couldn't be blamed on a "climate" of hostile rhetoric.

    Well, well, well… What a tangled web of hair-weaves, when the race-hustlers practice to deceive! Despite the lies spun by #BlackLivesMatter scammers, new analysis (to date, found only here) may turn out to blow the lid off the Philando Castile case. Officials are keeping such tight screws on information about the incident (the dashcam video, for example) that we are left to try to decipher everything ourselves, while black terrorists launch assassination attacks on police and lay seige to cities across the country. Castile’s girlfriend and passenger, Lavish “Diamond” Reynolds, has changed her story in multiple ways since the aftermath...

    DALLAS (AP) -- Military service changed the Dallas gunman from an extrovert into a hermit, his parents said in an interview excerpt published Monday. Micah Johnson's mother, Delphine Johnson, told TheBlaze website in an interview that her son wanted to be a police officer as a child. His six years in the Army Reserve, including a tour in Afghanistan, were "not what Micah thought it would be ... what he thought the military represented, it just didn't live up to his expectations."
