    FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — A silent march and a day of civil disobedience are among the events being planned for next month in Ferguson to mark the first anniversary of the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer, an event that galvanized the "Black Lives Matter" movement. Organizers are calling it the "Ferguson Uprising Commemoration Weekend." Plans announced Monday include a silent march starting at 11 a.m. Aug. 9 from Canfield Drive, where Michael Brown was killed, to Greater St. Mark Family Church. The agenda from the Ferguson Action Council includes an art event, rap and...

    FERGUSON • Tiahesia Palmer was checking out some of the free services, but her son wanted a haircut. So the Ferguson resident signed up Isiah, 7, to get his head shaved at the haircut tent at Saturday’s “Day of Hope.” He took off his ballcap and sat silently while a woman with the Elaine Steven Beauty College cleaned up around his ears. Palmer smiled. Wearing an “I-heart-FERG” T-shirt, she was happy that her community had attracted the event. Hundreds attended the festivities at Forestwood Park in Ferguson to receive free goods and services. The city and about 40 local churches,...

    Shades of 1968 and the Days of Rage? Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors has announced that "any opportunity we have to shut down a Republican convention, we will." Appearing on today's Melissa Harris-Perry show on MSNBC, Cullors also blithely spoke of "the murder of Mike Brown" in Ferguson, MO. Neither of the co-guest hosts sitting in for Harris-Perry, Richard Liu and Janet Mock, challenged Cullors' characterization. This despite the fact that even Eric Holder's Justice Department found no wrongdoing on the part of the police officer who shot Brown. View the video here.

    Planned Parenthood will soon perform abortions at their Columbia, Missouri location, Life News reports, joining Planned Parenthood of St. Louis to become the abortion giant’s second facility in the state to offer the procedure on-site. “We are proud to support women making their own health care decisions by expanding reproductive health services in an area where women have faced extreme barriers for too long,” Planned Parenthood of Kansas & Mid-Missouri President and CEO Laura McQuade said. The Columbia location had performed abortions in the past, but had to stop in 2012 when its only licensed abortionist resigned. “It took time...

    JEFFERSON CITY • Two Republican state lawmakers from Missouri announced plans Friday to investigate the state's only abortion facility after anti-abortion activists released an undercover video showing Planned Parenthood's national medical director discussing the disposition of parts from aborted fetuses. The video, which shows Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical services, discussing procedures for providing fetal body parts to researchers, has spurred outrage from a number of Republican elected officials nationwide. While the commercial sale of fetal tissue is outlawed, Planned Parenthood, which provides abortions and other reproductive health services, said in response to the video that...

    Kansas City’s minimum wage will rise to $13 an hour over about four and a half years under an ordinance that council members approved Thursday, although there are questions whether it could withstand a legal challenge. The ordinance, which makes the city the only one in Missouri to approve a wage higher than the state’s current $7.65 minimum, had the backing of low-wage workers, who burst into applause after council members and Major Sly James voted to approve it. The measure would apply to Kansas City, Missouri and not its sister city in Kansas. […] But business groups are questioning...

    A QuikTrip convenience store destroyed during unrest in Ferguson will be rebuilt as a community center. Nearly one year ago, massive demonstrations occurred within the St. Louis suburb and across the nation to protest the death of unarmed Black teenager Michael Brown. He was fatally shot by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. The center’s creation was funded by three companies: QuikTrip, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Starbucks. The center’s focus will be on much needed job-training and placement for African-Americans. The Urban League has also pledged to train and find jobs for 500 young people in this area by the end...

The party will instead honor avowed racist Harry Truman.Though the state party denied that the name change was due to racial issues, Democratic state Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, who has called for the name to be changed, said that it was probably due to race. Every state Democratic party holds an early-summer Jefferson-Jackson fundraising dinner.

The observance will come in the form of lowering the flags at the Dent County Courthouse and Judicial Building to below half-staff on the 26th day of the month from July 2015 to June 2016. The vote came after Presiding Commissioner Darrell Skiles filed a letter into the public record protesting, “the U.S. high court’s stamp of approval of what God speaks of as an abomination.” The letter details Skiles’ opposition...

Officials at the University of Arkansas Arthropod Museum describe this species of centipede as "fast moving and aggressive titans." The giant redheaded centipede is a predator that primarily feeds on...

Vincent Broughton, 44, who is black, is facing charges for committed a bias-motivated crime and disorderly conduct.

Another reads, “Black men beware, you are the target.” The messages had the congregation on edge. “We locked our doors this morning, so we were inside, but it shouldn’t be that way. You shouldn’t have to lock your doors in the church,...

    If a woman is seeking to have an abortion in the state of Missouri, it is required that she be given medical information on abortion, how the fetus can feel pain by 22 weeks and wait 72 hours before having the abortion. For Satanists, these restrictions are unconstitutional and violate their “religious” beliefs. Uh, ok. So the Satanists filed a federal lawsuit this week against the governor of Missouri and the state’s attorney general asking for a religious exemption to the law. They don’t believe that a human prenatal child is a separate, living being, as science has proven, and...

    Just how worried is Hillary Clinton over the suddenly-surging Bernie Sanders? Concerned enough that key supporters are taking to MSNBC to attack the Vermont senator. But will it work, or backfire? Fellow US Senator Claire McCaskill, a Clinton supporter, delivered a scathing assessment of her colleague during today’s Morning Joe, repeatedly calling Sanders “a socialist” and accusing the media of giving him “a pass”. As co-host Joe Scarborough pointed out, however, most of Bernie’s supporters already know he’s a socialist and are quite happy about it. Did Senator McCaskill consider whether calling attention to that on MSNBC would actually hurt...

Last year 82 people were shot over the Fourth of July weekend in Chicago. 16 of them died. The victims and the shooters were black.

    I realize we’ve been hitting the South Carolina shooting and the disgusting, racist criminal who allegedly perpetrated the murders rather often since yesterday morning. Unfortunately, nothing as serious and tragic as this can unfold in America today without immediately becoming mired in multiple levels of political muck, generally before the first facts are even verified. In this case, the process continued well into the evening and will surely roll forward in the weeks to come. One aspect of the church shooting, however, seemed to offer at least a slim ray of hope in an otherwise dismal day. A consortium of...

For this high number, Bratton blamed the "unfortunate consequences" of stop-and-frisk policing carried out on young non-white men over the last few years in New York.

    As a member of Congress, Dick Gephardt often spoke passionately about the need for the United States to recognize as genocide the mass deaths of as many as 1.5 million Armenians under the Turkish government that began one century ago. But as a lobbyist for Turkey since leaving Congress in 2005, Gephardt, a Democrat, has taken the opposite side. His behind-the-scenes work has been cited as a factor in the annual failure of Congress to recognize the Armenian genocide. Justice Department records show that Gephardt’s lobbying firm has been paid more than $8 million since 2008 to fight the declaration...

In a report titled, “The Negro Family: The Case for Action,” Assistant Secretary of Labor Moynihan, warned that the deterioration of the black family, would result in soaring crime rates if it continued unchecked. In the most famous passage of the 1965 report, Moynihan, who would later become a Democratic U.S. senator, wrote, “From the wild Irish slums of the 19th-century Eastern seaboard, to the riot-torn suburbs of Los...

    <p>Despite 6-1/2 years of horrid governance and dozens of acknowledged scandals, several of which a few of the credible remaining outposts of liberal thought have actually agreed are scandals, David Brooks, the New York Times's resident fake conservative, asserted on Friday's PBS NewsHour, as if it's an indisputable fact, that "President Obama has run an amazingly scandal-free administration, not only he himself, but the people around him."</p>

    Shades Of White ^ | 5/22/2015
    What’s a white person to do? Recently, I had the pleasure to participate in the Interplay Hip Hop Symposium at Lehigh University. The event was hosted by the inimitable hip hop theatre pioneer Kashi Johnson and keynoted by brilliant lyricist and hip hop educator Asheru. I gave a lecture about white appropriation of rap. My lecture led to a discussion about how white people fit into the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Together, we came up with these, the ten cracka commandments for 2015: 1. #AllLivesMatter won’t matter until #BlackLivesMatter. This commandment is a litmus test and the greatest commandment. 2. Always remember...

    A Catholic university in St. Louis has taken down a statue of a Catholic missionary over complaints that its depiction of Catholic conversion efforts represents a legacy of white supremacy, The College Fix reported. The statue at Jesuit-run Saint Louis University (SLU) is of Jesuit missionary Pierre-Jean De Smet, who evangelized American Indians during the 1800s and has several cities and schools in the U.S. named after him. It shows him holding a crucifix aloft as he ministers to two American Indians, who both look up to him in awe. The statue stood in front of SLU’s Fusz Hall...
  • The Left Goes Insane

    American Thinker ^ | Fay Voshell
    The fall in to “certain untruth” is almost complete within the ranks of the increasingly mentally disturbed Left. Further, because so much of what the Left is promulgating is in fact certain untruth, it must continually seek to cut off rational debates. It abhors questions about the veracity of its dogma and praxis. Leftists believe it is vitally important to prohibit questions that might undermine them or their system’s credibility. Nothing, absolutely nothing, about the dogma of the Left is to be questioned. It is only to be believed. That is one reason why the Left’s current chief flag bearer,...
  • This Is How Little It Cost Goldman To Bribe America's Senators To Fast Track Obama's TPP Bill

    Zero Hedge ^ | 05/30/2015 | Tyler Durden
    It took just a few days after the stunning defeat of Obama's attempt to fast-track the Trans Pacific Partnership bill in the Senate at the hands of his own Democratic party, before everything returned back to normal and the TPP fast-track was promptly passed. Why? The simple answer: money. Or rather, even more money. Because while the actual contents of the TPP may be highly confidential, and their public dissemination may lead to prison time for the "perpetrator" of such illegal transparency .... fast-tracking the TPP, meaning its passage through Congress without having its contents available for debate or amendments,...
  • Why the Brown family will win the lawsuit against Ferguson

    The Baltimore Post-Examiner ^ | May 30, 2015 | Doug Poppas
    On April 23 of this year Michael Brown’s family filed a lawsuit against the City of Ferguson for the wrongful death of their son, Michael Brown Jr. This civil case may not be just another frivolous attempt to gain media attention as is the case with many civil actions these days. I believe this case has a solid foundation and may bring to light some very serious questions concerning the death of Michael Brown at the hands of Ferguson police officer, Darren Wilson. Was implicit bias a factor in Brown’s death? Implicit bias can affect people’s decisions and their behavior...
  • The black lives that don’t matter to progressives

    New York Post ^ | May 28, 2015 | Rich Lowry
    Black Lives Matter, the slogan of the movement that began in earnest after the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., is a lie. Taken at face value, the phrase is a truism, since obviously all lives matter. But the people who use it as a shibboleth don’t care about black lives per se so much as scoring points against the police. When there is some awful tragedy involving a cop shooting or harming a young black man (sometimes justifiably, sometimes not), they muster every ounce of their moral dudgeon and stage demonstrations eagerly covered by a sympathetic media....

    The Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE) group reportedly promised to pay protesters $5,000 per month to stir up civil unrest in Ferguson following the death of Michael Brown at the hands of a white police officer.Last year's protests in Ferguson, Missouri were attended by hired protesters who were promised thousands of dollars per month to participate in the Black Lives Matter movement, but the hiring organization never paid those protesters, and now they are speaking out. The Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE) group, which succeeded the now-bankrupt St. Louis branch of the Association of Community Organizations...

    On Sunday, May 17, the mascot of the St. Louis Cardinals held a sign that read "Police Lives Matter." The person in the mascot outfit said he did not know what was on the sign. For this action, Fredbird has been labelled a "racist." Again, this is a baseball mascot holding a sign saying that police lives matter. The website Deadspin learned of the picture below and ran a story titled, "Your Racist Uncle Will Love This Picture Of The Cardinals' Mascot:" The author of the article, Tom Ley, then rambles for several paragraphs in an expletive-filled tirade. ...The image...

    [full title] GOP’s demonic new crusade: Right-wing zealots look for even crueler ways to treat the poor like garbage Happy Memorial Day! But if you’re in Wisconsin, and relying on food stamps, remember that Republicans don’t want you to have ketchup on your hamburger. They’d probably rather you didn’t have a hamburger at all, but Wisconsin farmers and ranchers have clout, and so proposed cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program made room for Wisconsin products. But they still don’t want you to have “crab, lobster, shrimp, or any other shellfish.” Or ketchup. Or spaghetti sauce. Really. For now, that’s...
