    Marine who was court-martialed after putting up Bible verse at her desk loses First Amendment appeal in 'outrageous' federal court decisionA Marine who was court-martialed after refusing to take biblical verses down from her desk has lost her federal appeal, in a decision her representative called 'outrageous'. Marine Lance Corporal Monifa Sterling lost a 2014 court-martial at her base in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, based in part on her refusal to remove the verses. She challenged that action but was told Wednesday that she had lost the case after it was ruled that the order was not a 'substantial burden'...

    Yes, Alton Sterling got into an altercation with the police and ended up getting shot. The blacks looking for trouble erupted in violence and caused even worse problems. The media failed in its job to point out WHY Alton Sterling died. First of all, Alto Sterling was selling pirated DVDs on the street which is ILLEGAL. To many people, that is no big deal. But, it was a big deal. The store owner knew he was doing it and was probably getting a cut of the profits to allow him to do his illegal transactions on his store property. Sterling...

    9News reports the details of a previous arrest of Alton Sterling that is eerily similar to the incident that ultimately led to his death. Sterling, 37, was recently killed in a shooting involving two Baton Rouge police officers on July 5. It turns out Sterling has struggled with police in the past. Documents show, in May 2009, Sterling fought with cops outside of a convenience store on Rosenwald Road, where he was selling CDs, while carrying a gun. In the report dated May 29, 2009, the officer said he was dispatched to a convenience store after getting a complaint about...

    Officers were justified in their shooting of Alton Sterling during a confrontation in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, according to a police report on the incident. That shooting resulted in Sterling's death, which alongside the police-involved shooting of Philando Castile near St. Paul, Minnesota, triggered nationwide protests. From CNN: In a search warrant affidavit seeking surveillance video from the store, [where police responded to a call about a man threatening another man with a gun,] Detective R. Cook wrote that the Baton Rouge officers deployed their Tasers after Sterling did not comply with their orders. "While the officers were attempting to subdue...

    It was only a matter of time before asset managers said "enough" to Bernanke's plan of debasing the dollar day after day, and took appropriate measures. In a not very surprising, yet quite shocking at the same time, development, caught by Annuity IQ, Lazard's The World Trust Fund has had enough of the dollar. Lazard will "change the currency in which the Fund's shares are traded from US dollars to Sterling." Good work Mr. Chairman and Wall Street lobby. The reason for the seismic shift: In response to comments from a number of shareholders and potential investors in the Fund...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — The billionaire wife of former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling got her revenge against a woman he secretly showered with gifts and whose recording of his racially offensive rant cost him ownership of the team. Shelly Sterling's victory Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court will force V. Stiviano to surrender a $1.8 million duplex and return $800,000 lavished on her in cash handouts and several luxury cars, including a Ferrari, during a shadowy relationship....

    A downcast looking V. Stiviano has been pictured moving her belongings out of the $1.8 million Spanish-style duplex that a LA judge ordered to hand back to Donald and Shelly Sterling earlier this month. Sterling's alleged former mistress has suffered a dramatic fall from grace in recent weeks losing not just the expensive condo, but a total of $2.6 million in sugar daddy gifts. Stiviano, 32, looked less than happy on Thursday as she helped several heavily-tattooed young men put her possessions in a converted mailing truck that had graffiti all over it.

    The White House has finally divulged the names of American Muslim leaders who met with President Obama this week, including Imam Mohamed Magid, who has advised the administration on formulating responses to incidents that Islamists consider offensive. After stonewalling journalists for two days about the names of the participants at the meeting Wednesday, the White House quietly attached the list of attendees to the end of its daily press briefing transcript Thursday evening. The guest list identified Imam Magid as a representative of the Adams Center, a large mosque in Sterling, Virginia. He has also served as president of the...

And give Katie a gentlelady's 'C' for her questioning. Couric earned the bulk of her credit by posing this seminal line of questioning: "Did [the leakers] have any sympathy or understanding about this new climate this country finds itself in and the criticism the Bush administration took prior to 9/11 for not putting the pieces together...

    A New York Times reporter will be subpoenaed to answer questions ahead of an upcoming trial of a former CIA officer accused of leaking classified information, though a Tuesday hearing indicated there is much confusion about what the journalist may be asked to reveal. Prosecutors say they will not ask James Risen if ex-CIA man Jeffrey Sterling was his anonymous source for part of the 2006 book “State Of War” that detailed a botched CIA effort to cripple Iran’s nuclear program. However, they do want to know if the two had a prior, on-the-record source relationship. Risen’s lawyer, Joel Kurtzberg,...

    Former national security adviser Condoleezza Rice told jurors Thursday she was stunned to learn that a classified mission to thwart Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions—now at the heart of a criminal leak trial—had been disclosed to a reporter. Rice testified for the prosecution in U.S. District Court at the trial of ex-CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling, 47, of O’Fallon, Missouri, who is charged with illegally disclosing details of the program to New York Times reporter James Risen. Sterling denies leaking any information to Risen. While Rice’s testimony helped establish the importance of the classified program in question, her testimony did not implicate...
