Is ACORN behind violent unrest in Ferguson?


By Matthew Vadum
Image SHAW


ACORN's old Missouri chapter is playing at least a supporting role in the violent unrest and crime wave that has plagued Ferguson and St. Louis, Missouri since the Aug. 9 death of Michael Brown.

With all the pathologies on parade right now in and around Ferguson, really, how could the loyalists of ACORN, which once claimed a membership of 400,000, have stayed away from the opportunity to lynch a white police officer for doing his job?  The recruiting and fundraising opportunities for the cop-hating progressive movement are virtually unlimited.

What's going on in Ferguson is mobocracy at its ugliest. 

Activists are blackmailing the grand jury that is now hearing evidence against police officer Darren Wilson, who shot Brown in August reportedly in self-defense.  If the grand jurors refuse to indict Wilson, radical activists are promising even more mayhem.

The message is unmistakable: indict the cop, and there will be peace.  Don't, and Ferguson will burn.
One of the groups deeply involved in causing chaos in Ferguson is Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE), a 501(c)(4) nonprofit. 

MORE is the rebranded Missouri branch of the former Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), which filed for bankruptcy in late 2010.  That ACORN state chapter reconstituted itself in December 2009 as MORE under orders from ACORN's national headquarters.  

President Obama used to work for ACORN, and he represented it in court as a lawyer.

MORE has been active in the protests and in efforts to free jailed demonstrators so they can continue vandalizing businesses, intimidating perceived adversaries, setting fires, throwing projectiles and urine at cops, and engaging in the left's usual modes of so-called nonviolent protest.  MORE believes that protesters should be given a blank check to inflict whatever harm they wish on the community in pursuit of social justice.

Chicago Sun-Times Reporter Resigns After Free Beacon Report


Chicago Sun-Times reporter Dave McKinney resigned from the paper just days after the Free Beacon reported that his wife’s political firm was working to defeat Republican Bruce Rauner, who had been at the center of several critical reports by McKinney.

In a letter Wednesday to Sun-Times Chairman Michael Ferro, McKinney tendered his resignation.
“It is with great sadness today that I tender my immediate resignation from the Sun-Times,” McKinney wrote on his personal blog.

While the reporter denied the allegations made by the Rauner campaign that his wife Ann Liston’s work conflicted with his political reporting, McKinney still decided to leave the paper after being placed on temporary leave.
Public records and other information obtained by the Free Beacon’s Adam Kredo connected Liston’s firm, Adelstein/Liston, to the Illinois Freedom Political Action Committee, which is backed by pro-Gov Quinn public employee unions and has targeted Rauner throughout the 2014 campaign.
The Rauner campaign said McKinney had a clear conflict of interest and maintained that it could have impacted his work on a controversial story that accused the Republican of threatening a former colleague.

McKinney admitted that his wife does Democratic political work, but denied she is working to defeat Rauner.
“The [Rauner] campaign falsely claimed she was working with a PAC to defeat Rauner and demanded a disclaimer be attached to our story that would have been untrue,” McKinney claimed. “It was a last-ditch act of intimidation.”

“Yes, Ann does political consulting work for Democrats,” he wrote. “But she has not been involved in the Illinois’ governor’s race and has focused on out-of-state campaigns.”
The reporter also revealed that even though the Sun-Times publicly stood by his reporting, he was placed on leave following the questions about his impartiality:

Pentagon Confirms: U.S. Weapons Likely Seized by Islamic State Militants

 By Adam Kredo

The Pentagon confirmed to the Free Beacon on Wednesday that a U.S. shipment of weapons dropped into Iraq likely strayed off course and was likely intercepted by Islamic State (IS, ISIL, or ISIS) militants.

After reviewing information about the weapons drop, which was intended to arm anti-IS forces near the embattled town of Kobani, the Pentagon determined that at least one of the 28 arms shipments “may have been seized by ISIL.”

Reports and video emerged Tuesday that appeared to show IS forces digging through a U.S. weapons shipment that appeared to include grenades and other arms.

Department of Defense spokeswoman Commander Elissa Smith said that after further review of the multiple weapon airdrops, at least two bundles were determined to have strayed off course.
While one stray shipment is believed to have been destroyed after it hit the ground, a second was likely intercepted by IS fighters, Smith said.

“Although initial indications were that all but one resupply bundle was successfully delivered, a subsequent review has determined that a second resupply bundle was not recovered by anti-ISIL forces and may have been seized by ISIL,” Smith said.

“It is therefore possible that the video released yesterday could be that missing bundle,” she said. “We are confident that coalition aircraft successfully destroyed the other bundle which went astray.”

However, reports that American-made arms made their way to IS are incorrect, Smith said. The weapons bundles did not include U.S.-made arms.

“Allegations that American-made weapons were among the Kobani resupply bundle are incorrect as the U.S. did not deliver any American-made weapons, equipment or supplies,” Smith said.
Despite the weapons likely being captured by IS, the Pentagon still considers the overall mission a “success,” according to Smith.

“All military missions incur some risk, especially airdrop resupply,” Smith said. “It is common practice—and was in this case—that we drop more than what is required with the expectation that not all bundles will be successfully retrieved. “

“Even with the loss of two bundles, the vast majority of the supplies intended for anti-ISIL forces reached their hands,” Smith said. “The mission was successful.”

Gary, Indiana Is a Serial Killer’s Playground

 By Justin Glawe
 
Darren Deon Vann's hometown has 10,000 abandoned houses, more than enough for him to hide six bodies. Even worse, it's a place where women disappear without being missed.

GARY, Indiana—Over a din of smart-ass comments and after-work banter, Peg at Bugsy’s Tavern asks the obvious question: “You guys wanna watch the news?” The answer is yes, of course, and the crowd at the tiny bar off the main drag in this busted town of 80,000 settles in to hear the score of their newly famous resident.

There’s a Jane Doe or two among the seven women allegedly killed by Darren Deon Vann who need to be identified; more charges are forthcoming for Vann, who is already pinned for the murder of Afrika Hardy, strangled and left in the bathtub of a Motel 6. Six bodies have been discovered thanks to his confession.

Supposedly there’s 14,” a concrete worker named Josh said Monday night.

“There’s gotta be more,” a beer-sipper agrees.

What there isn’t, the patrons at Bugsy’s are told as they gaze into TV screens glowing in the approaching dusk, is a motive. The whole episode is shocking, confusing, newsy and depressing—
a black eye for a town already sporting a fat lip and a broken nose.

There are 10,000 abandoned houses in Gary, the mayor said earlier in the day as details emerged about the crime that brought police to Vann’s doorstep. The homes sit in various stages of decay—some are torched to the point that blackened studs are the only thing left of a family’s long-gone home. Others are fixer-uppers, if you happen to be a construction expert and financial idiot. But most of the abandoned houses, with sagging roofs and drafty walls, are just there.
“It makes me uncomfortable,” a woman says, standing in front of 413 E. 43rd Ave., where the body of Anith Jones was found. “My kids walk by here every day.”

Congress hands Obama keys to Iran nuke deal

 By Garth Kant

The Obama administration is reportedly making feverish attempts to strike what critics consider a potentially disastrous nuclear agreement with Iran, and Congress not only may be powerless to stop the deal, lawmakers have no one to blame but themselves, according to a leading analyst of Islam and terrorism.

The New York Times reported many in the White House believe an agreement designed to keep Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons would be the most important foreign policy accomplishment of the Obama presidency. But if a deal is struck, the paper said, Obama will do everything in his power to avoid letting Congress vote on it.

The Times revealed a secret Treasury Department study concluded the president can suspend most of the sanctions currently imposed on Iran without a congressional vote. Many critics contend removing the sanctions would only boost Iran’s covert attempt to develop nuclear weapons, regardless of what promises the Islamic republic might make.

Who gave the president the power to bypass Congress?

Congress did, according to Andrew C. McCarthy, political analyst, best-selling author, former adviser to the deputy secretary of defense and former assistant U.S. attorney in New York.
“The fact of the matter is that, in enacting the sanctions, Congress explicitly afforded the president wide discretion to waive their terms based on his assessment of the national interest,” McCarthy told WND.
Technically, only Congress can permanently end the sanctions on Iran. But given the considerable wiggle room Congress has given the president, McCarthy indicated it would not be surprising to see Obama effectively attempt that.
“While a president cannot unilaterally repeal them, he has broad power to refrain from enforcing them,” McCarthy said. “We know from experience that Mr. Obama has declined to enforce laws that do not endow him with that kind of discretion, so there is every reason to expect non-enforcement where Congress has undeniably given him that power.”

Revealed: U.S. Cut Off Arms Supply to Israel During Gaza War--Isreal had Ignored Kerry

By P. David Hornik

Last August 14 the Wall Street Journal reported that, in July, after Israel had launched Operation Protective Edge in Gaza, Washington had surprised Israel by turning down an Israeli request for “a large number of Hellfire missiles.” Hellfires are an important air-to-surface precision weapon, suited to the kind of warfare Israel was waging against Hamas and other terror groups in Gaza.

But as Amir Rapaport, a veteran Israeli military-affairs writer and editor of the Israel Defense site, now reports:
The full truth…is much more severe: apparently, during Operation Protective Edge, the USA had completely stopped all connections with Israel’s defense procurement delegation based in the USA. For days, no item whatsoever could be shipped. The expected airlift of US ammunition had never even arrived at its point of departure.
The crisis began about ten days into Operation Protective Edge, pursuant to allegations that the percentage of uninvolved civilian deaths in the Gaza Strip was extremely high (IDF admitted that about one half of all Palestinian deaths were probably civilians who had not been involved in the fighting).
At that stage, the Israeli defense establishment submitted to the USA a request for various types of munitions, including Hellfire missiles, to replenish the dwindling inventories of IDF….

The order to stop the processing of all Israeli requests came from a senior echelon—probably the White House, among other reasons, because Israel had ignored the initiatives of Secretary of State John Kerry and preferred to end the operation through a direct channel with the Egyptians. The State Department had been annoyed with Israel for several months, since it was revealed that Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon had referred to Kerry as “Messianic” in closed sessions.

Dems: Pelosi isn’t going anywhere



By Mike Lillis

House Democrats face long odds at the polls and are bracing for depleted numbers next year, but that doesn’t mean they’re giving up on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) just yet.
Democrats on and off Capitol Hill expect Pelosi to remain as leader regardless of the outcome on Election Day. 

Pelosi, true to form, has been elusive about her post-election intentions, saying she’s focused on Nov. 4 without thoughts beyond.

But Democratic lawmakers, aides and strategists predict the unusual political dynamics in the House — where the GOP’s struggles to pass major legislation has given the minority Democrats rare sway — combined with the prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidential run, will be enough to keep the 74-year-old Pelosi in Washington at least through 2016.
“I think she stays for sure, and there are two reasons,” said a former House lawmaker who worked alongside Pelosi for years.
“One is the presidential cycle. … It’s very much a symbiotic proposition: Hillary’s chances and Nancy’s longevity,” the Democrat said
“The second reason [is] … that nothing major is going to happen in the next two years without House Democratic votes, and it puts her in a position of leveraging those votes to accomplish at least some of our agenda.”
Retiring Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) echoed that message, saying he’s seen no indication the hard-charging Pelosi is ready to call it quits.
“I hear the rumors, you know, that she’ll prevail in this election easily but then turn it over to her daughter. [But] she never told me that, and until she does I don’t have any real reason to believe it,” Moran, a 12-term congressman, said by phone.

“I think we have to take Nancy at her word … that she’s committed to leading the Democratic caucus and electing a Democratic president in 2016.”

Asked about the Hillary Clinton factor, Moran didn’t hesitate.

“I think Nancy would love to be the first female Democratic Speaker to serve under the first female Democratic president,” he said.

3 US girls may have tried to join ISIS: FBI







Three teenage girls from suburban Denver may have been trying to join Islamic State militants in Syria after stealing their parents’ money and flying to Germany, authorities said Tuesday.


The girls — two sisters, ages 17 and 15, and their 16-year-old friend — were reported missing after they skipped school Friday, but the families had no indication of where they might have gone, said Glenn Thompson, bureau chief of the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Department

They were stopped at the Frankfurt, Germany, airport over the weekend by FBI agents and returned to Colorado where they were reunited with their families, FBI spokeswoman Suzie Payne said.

A U.S. official said the girls were headed toward Turkey en route to Syria and that investigators were now reviewing evidence, including the girls’ computers.

Another U.S. official called the case “concerning” both to the community and to the country in general. The official said the evidence gathered so far made it clear that the girls were headed to Syria, though the official said investigators were still determining what sort of contacts they had in that country.

The official said investigators would be trying to figure out whether there were “like-minded” friends and acquaintances in the girls’ social circle.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation by name.

The Arapahoe County missing person’s report contains details of the girls’ movements.

GOP Doctors in House Seek Travel Ban



By Jonathan Topaz

The Republican Doctors Caucus is calling on the White House to put in place a temporary travel ban for West African countries affected by Ebola.

The letter, sent Tuesday to President Barack Obama, was signed by 16 members of the group, including co-chairs Reps. Phil Gingrey of Georgia and Phil Roe of Tennessee.
“Containment is the key to stopping the spread of this highly contagious and deadly disease,” the letter read, “and we strongly urge your administration to consider implementing a temporary travel ban for individuals who are citizens of, or traveled to, affected countries in West Africa.”
(Also on POLITICO: How the media stoked Ebola panic)

The letter made no mention of new restrictions the Obama administration announced Tuesday for travelers coming to the U.S. from Ebola-stricken countries. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson announced that all passengers flying from Liberia, Sierra Leone and New Guinea to the U.S. will have to fly into one of five international airports equipped with special screening. There are no direct flights from these countries to the U.S.

Tuesday’s letter acknowledged the White House’s argument that a travel ban would likely make it harder for aid workers to help get rid of Ebola in the affected countries in West Africa.

“Yet we must not lose sight of the fact that Ebola has reached America and has been transmitted on our soil, despite efforts to prevent this from occurring,” the letter read, in calling for more drastic action.

(Also on POLITICO: Are hospitals more deadly than Ebola?)

The letter comes as the White House faces increased pressure, particularly from Republicans, to implement a ban.

NAACP Speaker’s Alleged Remarks: Let’s Create Confusion During the Nov. 2014 Election By Deliberately Misleading Voters





According to a letter from a lawyer for the State of North Carolina to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), a speaker at a recent NAACP conference in North Carolina urged audience members to mislead the NAACP’s own members into believing they do not need to register to vote in advance, or that they do not need to vote at their assigned polling place. 


Why?  The letter alleges: To create confusion and animosity during the upcoming mid-term elections in North Carolina, and to use the evidence of that confusion in the ongoing litigation between
 Eric Holder’s Justice Department and North Carolina and to show that North Carolina’s election integrity laws are discriminatory. From the letter:

It is also our understanding that during the [NAACP conference], Rev. Barber urged those in attendance to take unregistered voters to vote during the Early Voting period and to engage in get-out-the vote activities that included transporting registered voters to vote in precincts in which they are not assigned to vote on Election Day, or words to that effect. The stated purpose for these activities, as I understand it, was to gather evidence for and thereby enhance plaintiffs prospects of success in the litigation involving [North Carolina’s Election Integrity Laws].

Judicial Watch has been actively involved in this sprawling North Carolina election litigation for the past two years. Judicial Watch has filed two amicus briefs in this case, one in 2013 and one in 2014, supporting North Carolina and election integrity. On both occasions, we were joined in our brief by our partner the Allied Educational Foundation and by local political activist Christina Merrill.  We also gave oral arguments and submitted an expert witness report to the trial court explaining that no one is harmed by these election integrity laws, but rather, these laws prevent fraud and ensure all Americans are confident that election results are fair and honest.

If true, the fact that the NAACP’s leaders appear willing to risk the confusion and disenfranchisement of their own members in order to deceive a Court about common sense election integrity laws speaks volumes about the intellectual bankruptcy of the left’s arguments. 

The left’s weak arguments also explain why the U.S. Supreme Court, by a 7 to 2 vote, recently overruled the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals’ temporary injunction and held that North Carolina’s laws comply with federal law and should be used during the November 2014 election.  The litigation between North Carolina and the DOJ is expected to proceed further in 2015.

Why Republicans Don’t Get It



By Ben Shapiro
Image SHAW


Republican Party simply doesn’t get it.

A new poll this week shows 2012 presidential nominee and 2008 primary candidate Mitt Romney leading the field of potential 2016 Republican candidates.
 According to ABC News/Washington Post, 21 percent of Republican voters would vote for Romney in the primaries; Jeb Bush and Mike Huckabee tie at 10 percent, followed by Rand Paul, Chris Christie and Paul Ryan
Altogether, some 44 percent of Republican primary voters want an “establishment” candidate — by which we mean a candidate for whom social issues are secondary, immigration reform is primary and economics dominates.

The establishment donors on the coasts see this poll and believe that a consolidated funding effort mobilized behind the Chosen One (Romney, Bush, Christie or Ryan) could avoid a messy primary and keep the powder dry for a 2016 showdown with Hillary.

The conservative base knows this, and they groan.

That’s because the conservative base understands that what motivates them is not the marginal tax rate — nobody in the country knows, offhand, his or her effective tax rate — but values.
And none of the top priorities for Republican donors match the fire-in-the-belly issues that motivate the folks who knock on doors, phone bank and provide the under-$50 donations that could power a Republican to victory.
The divide between the establishment and the base represents a divide between the wallet and the working man, the penthouse and the pews, the Ivy Leagues and the homeschools.
Which is why Republican leadership quietly assures its top donors that should Republicans win the Senate, their first legislative push will encompass corporate tax reform and immigration reform.

They will not push primarily for border security, or for protection of religious freedom, or for repeal of Common Core.
They will not use their opportunity to govern as an opportunity to draw contrast between conservatism and leftism. Instead, they will seek “common ground” in a vain attempt to show the American people that efficiency deserves re-election.
And the American people will go to sleep, conservatives will vomit in their mouths, and leftists will demonize Republicans all the same.

The End (Barack Obama)


By Erick Erickson

The public has tired of Barack Obama. More and more polling is beginning to reflect that and, given the latest Associated Press and Reuters polling, I wonder if some pollsters showing very close races are actually overcompensating because of 2012.

That point is worth considering first. Having talked to a number of pollsters, both Democrat and Republican, there are a few good, credible pollsters who called 2012 right who wonder if some pollsters are overcompensating.

In 2012, a number of polling companies, including Gallup and Rasmussen, got the results very wrong. They overestimated Romney’s strength and underestimated a host of demographics turning out for President Obama.

Several pollsters I have talked to, who do not see the closeness some pollsters are seeing and who called 2012 right, think other pollsters may be over-correcting to try to avoid their own 2012.
In the process, these pollsters may be getting 2014 wrong. It does seem, at the state by state level, there are a few races that look a lot closer than they should be — particularly now that we know Democrats have missed their voter registration targets significantly in a number of states.

That leads us back to the President.

Two of the polls that got 2012 right were the Associated Press/GfK poll and the Reuters/Ipsos poll. According to Reuters, the President is at 61% disapproval among likely voters. In the Associated Press poll, 60% of likely voters disapprove of the President. Further, the AP poll has the GOP ahead by eight percentage points in the generic ballot. For perspective, the AP had the GOP ahead by +7 in 2010. Even female voters are moving toward the GOP.

Most interestingly, while the GOP is not well liked by voters, the party leads the Democrats on most every issue. Whether national security or the economy, voters want the GOP over the Democrats

House Armed Services Chairman: Unnecessary to Hold Hearings on Ebola Mission

By Edwin Mora


The chairman of the House Armed Services Committee does not think it is necessary to reconvene Congress and hold emergency hearings on the Ebola mission in West Africa, despite comments by two top generals raising concerns about the safety of the American troops deployed to fight the lethal virus.

Claude Chafin, a spokesman for the House armed services panel, told Breitbart News that comments made by Gen. David Rodriguez, the commander of the U.S. Africa Command, and Gen. Darryl Williams, the commander of U.S. Army Africa, are inconsistent with the briefings the committee has received from the Pentagon.

According to Chafin, the Department of Defense (DoD) has been diligent in keeping House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon (R-CA) informed about the mission.
“With the kind of response he is getting from DoD, with the kind of information he is getting from DoD, [the chairman] does not think calling people back and having an Ebola hearing is warranted because DoD like I said is being very, very responsive to our inquiries,” Chafin explained.

Nevertheless, Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC), the third-ranking member of the committee’s majority, thinks Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) should call the House back to debate the Ebola mission in West Africa on the floor.
“I think Speaker Boehner ought to let us debate this issue of the president’s authority to bypass Congress to go whether it be Africa to fight Ebola or the bombing in Syria without coming to Congress,” Congressman Jones told Breitbart News. “This is just another example of my concerns of the president’s lack of respect for the Constitution and the Congress.”
“The men and women who joined the military did not join to become public health cops. I want to make sure that our military is being protected, given all the resources of protection, and I want to know what the role is of our military of 4,000 people,” he added. “I want to see more details of what they’re supposed to be doing. So to me, Mr. Boehner should call us back after the election or before the election, but I think it is not going to happen to be honest about it.”
According to Rep. Jones, the safety of the troops deployed to West Africa is what concerns him the most about the Ebola mission.
“This goes back to meeting our constitutional responsibilities as members of Congress,” he said. 

Speaker John Boehner’s office declined to comment on this story.
During a Pentagon press briefing on October 7, Gen. Rodriguez said the majority of the troops being deployed on the Ebola mission, up to 4,000, will not get the full body personal protective equipment (PPE).

Exclusive — Rand Paul: Religious Freedom Dying at Altar of Political Correctness





 By Sen Rand Paul

October 31, 1517, Martin Luther posted his Ninety-Five theses on the door of the Castle Church of Wittenberg. Christianity was for all time changed by one man's confrontation with authority.

For his audacity, for alleging that one's path to heaven could not be purchased, Luther was excommunicated. It took great bravery to challenge what was then considered to be the ultimate arbiter of God's will. Luther was told, effectively, that his pathway to heaven was foreclosed.

When the Mayor of Houston, sent her legal attack dogs to demand the sermons of ministers who opposed an ordinance that might prevent churches from hiring people who adhered to a traditional faith, my first thought was of Martin Luther and my hope was that someone would, in elaborate calligraphy, stencil the First Amendment upon parchment and nail it to the doors of city hall.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
The Amendment was clear, and its intent was not to keep religious people out of government, but rather to keep government out of religion.
There has been, and will be, an ongoing debate about the role of government in marriage—what our laws should be, and where they are made.

But make no mistake—that’s not what this is about.

Some will make this debate about freedom of choice, but the only way this is about choice is if we are talking about the choice with regards to expression. No one, no law is advocating any restriction on the choices of consenting adults, but for goodness sakes are we so politically correct that we will stifle dissent? Will there be no room for people who have traditional beliefs?

In the same way the law should not restrict consenting adults, likewise the law should have nothing to do with restricting or restraining the free exercise of a religious people who object.

Consenting adults of a religious persuasion should not have their ideas monitored. Religious beliefs cannot and should not be trumped by political correctness.

No law should prevent religious people from coming together and discussing what they believe to be right and wrong.

Dissent may well be the foremost of freedoms necessary to restrain despotism.

Foremost among these freedoms—mentioned specifically in the amendment, and even before speech—is the free exercise of religion.
Nothing chills dissent, speech, or the free exercise of religion like the heavy hand of government, which is why the Mayor of Houston attacking the pulpit is so extreme, and needs to be spoken out against, now, loudly.

When sermons are censored or demanded to be produced, then we are in danger. I don't care if the sermons castigate the immorality of instant replay, freedom absolutely requires dissent. Anything short of full dissent is not freedom and should be fought with vigor, no matter your opinion on the subject at hand.
The First Amendment cannot be allowed to wither and die on the altar of political correctness. Maybe it's time to nail it to the door of every city hall, state capital and entrance to Congress every day, so they have a daily reminder of what they're not allowed to do.
Breitbart
