  • Black Mob Violence Now a Sickness

    americanthinker ^ | Nov. 26, 2014 | Colin Flaherty
    Thank you, Ferguson: Thanks to you we learned that black mob violence is now a sickness -- not just a problem. And no one is sicker than the reporters who ignore, condone, excuse, and even encourage it, as we learned from the latest riot. For reporters, Mike Brown has always been a moving target: At first the Gentle Giant was cut down for no reason whatsoever. Reporters ate it up and black mob violence followed. When that fairy tale evaporated, they replaced it -- with ease. The day after the riot ,on "Morning Joe", I learned from a black reporter...

    The 36-year-old mother of four had suffered severe burns over more than half her body and had cuts on her head when firefighters found her November 14, naked in a park near the Wichita State University campus. The suspect in the case, twenty-six-year-old Cornell A. McNeal, also of Wichita, was charged Friday with attempted capital murder, rape and arson. Lt. Espinoza says the charges against McNeal will now be amended to include murder. McNeal is accused of raping, beating and setting on fire a 36-year-old woman who was walking in Fairmount Park, south of Wichita State University’s main campus, about...

    One person was taken into custody after two people were shot on the campus of Carol City High School in Miami Thursday, according to Miami-Dade Police.

The Miami-Dade County School Board later canceled all night activities at Carol City High, Carol City Middle, and Barbara Hawkins Elementary were cancelled.

But CNN law enforcement analyst Tom Fuentes said the Ferguson PD was right to stock up on riot gear anyway, as things are “going to overheat” if Officer Darren Wilson isn’t indicted and convicted for shooting unarmed teenager Michael Brown. “Whether [Jackson] resigns, or is fired, won’t matter at the end of the day if Wilson isn’t arrested, prosecuted, and jailed for shooting Michael Brown,” said Fuentes, a former FBI...

    At least since the early part of the 20th century, aside from oil, the Arab world has produced and exported two products. It has produced essentially no technology, medicine, or anything else in the world of science. It has almost no contributions to world literature, to art, or to intellectual development. According to the most recent United Nations Arab Human Development Reports (2003–2005), written by Arab intellectuals, Greece, with a population of 11 million, annually translates five times more books from English than does the entire Arab world, population 370 million. Nor is this a new development. The total...

    National Review ^ | 09/27/2014 | Katherine Timpf
    The University of Michigan has released a list of relationship behaviors that it considers violent and abusive — including “withholding sex.” “Discounting the partner’s feelings regarding sex,” “criticizing the partner sexually,” and “having sex with other people” are also examples of “sexual violence,” according to the list. The school also offers definitions of domestic abuse. Under the section for “verbal or psychological abuse,” it states that not only is “insulting the partner” considered “abuse,” so is “ignoring the partner’s feelings.” Janet Bloomfield, social media director for A Voice for Men, explained the dangers of such broad definitions of “violence” in...

Put simply, false views of God’s nature can lead to religiously motivated actions, such as terrorism and violent persecution, which are contrary to the nature and will of God.

    The violence that turns a small-town protest into a fiery national spectacle like the one that has played out this month in Missouri is often unwittingly provoked by police, according to researchers at UC Berkeley. The research team, which studied clashes between police and activists during the Occupy movement three years ago, found that protests tend to turn violent when officers use aggressive tactics, such as approaching demonstrators in riot gear or lining up in military-like formations.

    Why isn't Mexico doing more to deter unaccompanied minors from Central America from traversing Mexico to cross the U.S.-Mexico border?

Mexico's secretary of foreign affairs, Jose Antonio Meade, met with the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board Tuesday, so I had a chance to ask him. His answer was instructive: Mexico offers health services for migrants passing through the country, he said, but when Mexican officials "find an unaccompanied minor within Mexico, he doesn't want to stay in Mexico." And: "At the core of the child's interest...

Prolifers had to get a restraining order against the boyfriend so that this person would keep her baby. Perhaps...
