    New York Post ^ | September 24, 2020 | Mark Moore
    Former Vice President Joe Biden condemned the indictment against an ex-Kentucky cop for shooting into Breonna Taylor’s adjoining apartment, saying the call for equal justice was “not answered.” The Democratic presidential nominee said Taylor, who was killed in a botched police drug raid in March, was “shot in her own home by the police.” “In the wake of her tragic death, we mourn with her mother, family, and community and ask ourselves whether justice could be equally applied in America,” Biden said in a statement. “I know for so many people today’s decision does not answer that call.” Biden’s statement...

Mayor Greg Fischer announced the changes at 2 p.m. with Taylor's family, attorneys Lonita Baker and Ben Crump, and others.

    Conservative Firing Line ^ | 7-20-20 | Joe Newby
    While participating in a “Back the Blue” rally supporting police at the Civic Center amphitheater in Denver, activists with Antifa and the Marxist Black Lives Matter assaulted conservative icon Michelle Malkin. According to a report at the Gateway Pundit, police officers took no action at first, prompting Malkin to state that “Chief Pazen, who marched with BLM last month, let pro-police patriots get beaten and silenced.” Even though video shows her being roughed up, Malkin said she is physically “ok,” but, she added in a tweet, the country is not.

    Sacha Baron Cohen has pulled off his latest prank. Variety can confirm the comedian and star of the political satire show “Who Is America?” infiltrated a conservative rally in Washington on Saturday, making his way on stage and getting some people in the crowd to sing racist lyrics about President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Dr. Anthony Fauci and the “Wuhan flu.” The rally, titled “March for Our Rights 3,” was organized by the Washington Three Percenters, a right-wing militia organization, on Saturday. According to social media posts from the event’s organizers, Baron Cohen disguised himself as the leader of a political...

    White progressive racial masochism is nothing new; Tom Wolfe skewered it brilliantly nearly a half century ago in essays like “Mau-Mauing the Flak-Catchers.” But the current manifestation is more significant and dangerous. It has taken place amidst violent widespread rioting and looting and assaults, and so these acts of kneeling are a form of tribute exacted by the sheer power of destruction wrought by the rioters and their “peaceful” abettors. As such, they undermine the very foundation of citizen self-rule and political freedom: Government by laws, offices, and free deliberation rather than by the whims and failings of one man;...
  • Politico: ‘After Failing to Stop Kavanaugh, Dems Wonder If It’s Time to Be More Ruthless’

    Hot on the heels of attacking Judge Brett Kavanaugh as a serial gang-rapist who should not be allowed around children, Democrats are wondering if it’s “time to be more ruthless,” Politico reports. John F. Harris writes in Politico that many “top Democratic operatives” have “the fear that their party loses big power struggles because Republicans are simply tougher, meaner, more cynical and more ruthless than they are.” "A belief in one’s own virtue feels good. Losing a battle that could shape the American political landscape for decades feels bad. The tension between the two left some Democrats grappling anew this...

    A writer for CBS's "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" on Sunday apologized for her "sarcasm" in a deleted tweet about newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Ariel Dumas on Saturday tweeted, "Whatever happens, I'm just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh's life." The post quickly went viral, as multiple conservative pundits retweeted it with critical commentary. Dumas the next day said the tweet was a "tone-deaf attempt at sarcasm." "The last couple of weeks have been hard for the country and for me personally," she wrote. "The complexity of frustration, anger and sadness can’t be accurately conveyed on twitter,...

    During his final year in office, President Obama's team significantly expanded efforts to search National Security Agency intercepts for information about Americans, distributing thousands of intelligence reports across government with the unredacted names of U.S. residents during the midst of a divisive 2016 presidential election. 2 of 26 The data, made available this week by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, provides the clearest evidence to date of how information accidentally collected by the NSA overseas about Americans was subsequently searched and disseminated after President Obama loosened privacy protections to make such sharing easier in 2011 in the...

    First, please excuse me. I never post a few-line vanity; if I post my own material, it is usually a well-thought-out and supported editorial. Forgive me, because I think this thought is important. Indulge me, because it is my birthday.I have always viewed this election in terms of how it would effect my Second Amendment Rights. But after seeing the sheer and brazen corruption in which Comey quashed any charges against Clinton -- having reviewed more than a half a million emails in less than three days -- it is obvious that if Hillary Clinton is elected President, we have...
  • Obama shortens terms for 214 prisoners; 67 had life sentence

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is cutting short the sentences of 214 federal inmates, including 67 serving life sentences. The White House says it's the largest batch of commutations on a single day in more than a century. Almost all the prisoners were serving time for nonviolent drug offenses. The commutations bring to 562 the total number of sentences Obama has shortened. The White House says that's more than the past nine presidents combined. Almost 200 of those who have benefited were serving life sentences. White House counsel Neil Eggleston says Obama will continue granting clemency to more inmates...
