    Coach is Right ^ | 7/22/2011 | Doug Book
    Two Super Bowl Sundays ago, Elliot Mayfield, his 15 and 11 year old daughters and a friend were waiting at a South Side Chicago bus stop. A very intoxicated Samuel Fullilove approached the group and offered to sell drugs to Mayfield. Although Mayfield had a 1990 drug conviction, he was now a drug rehab counselor and informed Fullilove that he was “…just trying to get his daughters home safely.” Undeterred, Fullilove continued to press Mayfield, yelling, taunting him and according to the police report, eventually “getting into one of his daughter’s faces.” At this point,an angry Mayfield, removed a pistol...

    Visits by two men, claiming to be Homeland Security employees, have Middletown officials raising a lot of questions. Police say one man, who was armed and wearing a Homeland Security badge, entered Mayfield Elementary School yesterday morning, before the start of class. Officials say he and another man, also wearing a similar badge, had been to an apartment complex earlier looking for a suspect. At the school, the man claiming to be an agent, asked the principal whether a particular street was within the school's attendance area.

    NASCAR said Jeremy Mayfield once again tested positive for methamphetamine and asked the federal judge who lifted the driver's drug suspension to reinstate the ban. The positive result from a July 6 random test was included in a U.S. District Court filing Wednesday that included an affidavit from Mayfield's stepmother, who claimed she personally witnessed the driver using methamphetamine at least 30 times over seven years.

    ESPN reports Mayfield tested positive for methBy Jay Busbee Tue Jun 09, 2009 4:39 pm EDT Extremely disturbing news today on the NASCAR front, as ESPN The Magazine's Ryan McGee is reporting that Jeremy Mayfield tested positive for methamphetamines during the May 1 drug screening in Richmond that led to his indefinite suspension from NASCAR. As McGee notes, court documents revealed that Mayfield admitted to consuming both Claritin-D, the allergy medication and Carl Edwards sponsor, which must be thrilled to be dragged into this, and Adderall XR, medication which Mayfield said was prescribed to help treat attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. But...

    To Preempt Terrorists, or Not to Preempt Terrorists?   By Daniel PipesFrontPageMagazine.com | Tuesday, October 02, 2007 "Everything" did not change on 9/11, as some expected, but one thing certainly did: the U.S. government's willingness to preempt enemies before they act. This new policy has outraged so many, it may be discontinued.In foreign affairs, preemption replaced the long-established policy of deterrence. A series of speeches established the new policy, culminating in George W. Bush's June 2002 declaration that "our security will require all Americans to be forward-looking and resolute, to be ready for preemptive action when necessary to defend...

    Once upon a time, in the peaceable, multicultural kingdom of Portland there was a man named Brandon Mayfield. He was arrested and jailed briefly for an awful crime he didn't commit. Why? Because he was a Muslim in George Bush's America, and the president's minions had a really scary new law called the Patriot Act. This law allowed them to arrest and put in jail a totally innocent Muslim for the simple crime of being a Muslim in George Bush's America. And the people in the peaceable, multicultural kingdom of Portland were sore afraid. So goes the Mayfield legend, but...

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 6, 2006 — A Justice Department inspector general report found that problems with FBI forensic analysis and performance led to the mistaken arrest of an Oregon man as a suspect in the March 11, 2004, Madrid train bombings. Portland attorney Brandon Mayfield was incorrectly identified by the FBI as a suspect in the attacks because of incorrect fingerprint data. Mayfield was arrested on May 6, 2004, and secretly held as a material witness for two weeks. He was released when the Spanish National Police eventually matched the fingerprints to an Algerian national. Justice Department's Inspector General Glenn Fine's...

    A federal judge in Portland ruled Thursday that Brandon Mayfield's high-profile challenge to the USA Patriot Act can go forward. In a 48-page rejection of the Justice Department's motion for dismissal, U.S. District Judge Ann Aiken also ordered the FBI to open up files showing how agents secretly spied on Mayfield and his family. Federal law enforcement officials had released some details of the so-called sneak and peak searches of the family's home in the spring of 2004. However, Mayfield's attorneys have argued that they can't adequately proceed with their challenge to the constitutionality of the Patriot Act without total...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Investigators probing the London terror bombings are focusing on an elusive British Muslim suspect who is connected to a previous plot to set up a terrorist training camp in rural southern Oregon, according to U.S. counterterrorism officials. Officials told both NBC News and CNN Wednesday that Haroon Rashid Aswat, believed to be a mastermind of the London bombings, is the same British-born Muslim of Indian descent who scouted a Bly, Oregon ranch to set up a terror camp. These officials said Aswat, a Pakistani national being sought for questioning as a person of interest by British authorities,...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | April 26, 2005 | Editorial (full text)
    How quickly they neglect. That's our reaction to the news that Portland, Oregon, has decided to withdraw from the FBI's counterterrorism task force over fears that the civil or constitutional rights of its citizens might be violated. Mayor Tom Potter made that call last week, in one more sign that memories are fraying as September 11 grows more distant. Mr. Potter tried to put a happy face on his decision in a press conference Friday, saying the city is "changing" its ties with the FBI, not "severing" them, and that Oregonians will still be "safe." But what about the rest...
