    CNN Guest on Brooklyn Cop Shooting: ‘Al Sharpton Got What He Wanted’ by Josh Feldman | 5:30 pm, December 20th, 2014 video 397 No information is yet known about the motivations of the man who fatally shot two NYPD officers today, but that hasn’t stopped people from already drawing conclusions, most noticeably connecting this gunning-down of two officers to recent anti-police sentiment in New York. Retired NYPD detective Harry Houck wasted no time in blaming those protests and the people behind them for what happened today. He said the demonstrations have “all be predicated on lies,” and even went so...

    Michelle Obama wants you to feel bad for her, and for Barack, because they are black. “I think people forget that we’ve lived in the White House for six years,” Michelle says in People Magazine. “Before that, Barack Obama was a black man that lived on the South Side of Chicago, who had his share of troubles catching cabs.” Oh, the horror. Why didn’t the emperor clean up Chicago neighborhoods with his pen and his phone while he was there? Cabs likely would have stopped more frequently if the city, especially the South and West Sides, wasn't infested by crime....

Michelle Obama told one story that recently took place, even as she was first lady of the United States. "I tell this story – I mean, even as the first lady – during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf.

Then, she offered no comment after top aides and supporters confirmed Republicans’ principal charge against her, and exhorted partisan Democrats to vote illegally. Next, she blundered through her final debate, assailing her Republican opponent for...

    This weekend we are seeing the media engaged in endless navel gazing as to what comes next for those who remain angry over the grand jury’s decision regarding Officer Darren Wilson and Michael Brown. There are additional marches and demonstrations being planned for those who still wish to “seek justice” somehow, while rejecting the idea that our system of criminal justice was precisely what was at play in that courthouse. But on a separate and potentially more productive front, others are working on passing new laws requiring body cameras and monitors mounted in police vehicles for all officers. Supporters are...

I find it insulting,” she said on Fox News.

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Louisiana Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu said Thursday that the issue of race is a major reason that President Barack Obama has struggled politically in Southern states. “I'll be very, very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans,” Landrieu told NBC News in an interview. “It's been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader." Noting that the South is “more of a conservative place,” she added that women have also faced challenges in “presenting ourselves.” The comment prompted a fiery response from Louisiana Republican...

    In the final days before the election, Democrats in the closest Senate races across the South are turning to racially charged messages — invoking Trayvon Martin’s death, the unrest in Ferguson, Mo., and Jim Crow-era segregation — to jolt African-Americans into voting and stop a Republican takeover in Washington. The images and words they are using are striking for how overtly they play on fears of intimidation and repression. And their source is surprising. The effort is being led by national Democrats and their state party organizations — not, in most instances, by the shadowy and often untraceable political action...

    The recent unfortunate shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and its violent aftermath seem to have had everything and nothing to do with race. Brown was black and unarmed and the officer white; but it is equally true that the 292-pound Brown likely committed a number of crimes in the minutes before his death. He was high on drugs; he robbed a store and strong-armed the clerk; he was walking down the middle of a road; and he started a physical altercation with policeman Darren Wilson (who tried to question him), inflicting injuries on the officer before being fatally...

With less than two weeks to go before this year’s mid-term elections, that last guarantee is in full effect. Polls show Democrats aren’t very excited at the prospect of voting next month. They’re disappointed by the president’s failures and the fumbles by their candidates. But make no mistake – they will vote, and they will vote for the Democrats. Polls on enthusiasm are interesting but irrelevant in...

    Police in Ferguson, Missouri, committed human rights abuses as they sought to quell mostly peaceful protests that erupted after an officer killed an unarmed black teenager, an international human rights organization said in a report released on Friday. The Amnesty International report said law enforcement officers should be investigated by U.S. authorities for the abuses, which occurred during weeks of racially charged protests that erupted after white Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed Michael Brown, 18, on Aug. 9. The use by law enforcement of rubber bullets, tear gas and heavy military equipment and restrictions placed on peaceful...

Written this month with an eye toward Election Day, it predicted “crushing Democratic losses across the country” if the party did not do more to get black voters...

    Racism and suffering are powerful tools in the hands of talented opportunists. With a mastery of duplicity, equivocation and guided bitterness, the result is a perfect crusade.

To their great credit, Michael Brown’s parents and Darren Wilson's supporters have navigated their suffering with great dignity. For the left, Ferguson is about winning and conquering the present legal system. It is not about evidence, guilt or innocence. It is simply about power, control and reversed racism. Led by Rep. Elijah Cummings, the Congressional...

    We’ve now moved to a new stage of the racist reaction to the police killing of Michael Brown: the largely overt assertion that he deserved to be killed. In the immediate aftermath of Brown, though unarmed, being shot “multiple times” after being stopped while walking in the middle of the street, the “ballad” being played in some quarters went like this: we don’t know all the facts so we shouldn’t rush to judgment. But, once the Ferguson police released the video of Michael Brown purportedly snatching a box of cigars from the convenience store and intimidating its clerk, that advice...

    An Al Sharpton-led memorial service yesterday for Michael Brown, the black 18-year-old thug who gave a white Ferguson, Mo. police officer a severe head injury while trying to seize his handgun, became the grotesque political rally some observers feared it would be.The distinctly anti-police tone of the service was proof that the lie that Brown tried to surrender to white police officer Darren Wilson, rather than trying to beat the life out of him, won’t die. The racial-grievance industry, egged on by President Obama, won’t let it go. The Left’s narrative that the nearly 300-lbs. Brown, who had just robbed...

    Following events in Ferguson, Missouri, I’ve been wondering: Where are the voices of black leaders who are not race baiters? Most recently, I found three such voices. Larry Elder was spot on as a member of a CNN panel. The clip is short (1.5 minutes) and well worth a listen. Elder who packs a lot into that short span of time ended with this: I hear people talk about how the Ferguson Police Department does not represent the city. So what? Are you saying that because the city has a certain racial composition you therefore can’t represent the people? If...

    MONTICELLO — Embattled Monticello Mayor Gordon Jenkins and village Code Enforcement Officer James Snowden were arrested Thursday and charged with several felonies and misdemeanors in connection with the demolition of the old village justice court. The charges include third-degree bribe receiving, second-degree criminal mischief, fifth-degree conspiracy and endangering public health, safety and the environment. Jenkins was also charged with third-degree intimidating a witness. That charge is related to his November 2013 arrest on charges of drunken driving and resisting arrest. According to the indictment by a Sullivan County grand jury, Jenkins called a witness a "snitch" and told him to...

    Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol are impressive people. After all, they obeyed God’s call to minister to the “least of these” as missionaries to Liberia. Dr. Brantly grew in stature when, after contracting the deadly Ebola virus, he decided to forfeit an experimental serum so that 60-year-old Writebol could have the first available dose. Then, that night while the second sub-zero serum thawed, Brantly suddenly took a turn for the worse and was quickly administered the initial dose he had originally turned down. This is a man willing to go last and as a result, as promised, ended up...

    Don Mullen: Why don’t America’s hotels provide hair products for black as well as white hair? Is there a way to get them to correct this “micro-aggression”? Jenée Desmond-Harris: Thanks for your question. I thought about the issue of hotel toiletries when I was writing the Race Manners column that answered the question, “Is Using Lotion a Black Thing?” In my opinion, the tiny moisturizer that most hotels provide is very clearly not designed for those who want or need to use it on their entire body (read: most black people). But off the top of my head, I’m not...

    It is no accident that rhetoric about race has been ramping up at a time when racial politics can be the key determinant for control of the Senate this year.At least three states - North Carolina, Louisiana, and Arkansas - are red states with vulnerable Democrat senators up for re-election that have large black populations.Can racism really be as rampant in America as all the current rhetoric implies?A Google search for “racism” will produce a long list of articles from the most recent week's news claiming racism on issue after issue of national concern.We need to dig deeper and give...

    Attorney General Eric Holder, in a recent interview, reiterates the theme heard from the very beginning of President Barack Obama's administration: opposition to Obama's agenda equals racism. "There's a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that's directed at me (and) directed at the president." What is Holder's proof -- to the extent that any is required? After all, following his election, Obama's favorable ratings reached nearly 80 percent, higher than any president-elect since John F. Kennedy. Obama, in 2008, received a greater percentage of the "white vote" than did John Kerry. Polls, studies and statistics, for Holder, aren't...
