Michael Brown Autopsy A Further Blow To #Ferguson Racial Narrative

[LegalInsurrection.com] Gunpowder stippling found inside injury strongly suggests Brown’s hand was on Wilson’s pistol when it fired.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has obtained and released the official autopsy report of Mike Brown, the black man shot and killed by Police Officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, MO this past August. (The autopsy report is embedded below.)

The item in the report that perhaps sheds the greatest light on the circumstances of the shooting is the evidence that Mike Brown has a gunshot wound to the inside of his right hand near his thumb and palm that appears to be a contact gunshot wound. This would be consistent with the police narrative that Brown was fighting with Officer Wilson for possession of his service pistol when the shot was fired. –Read More…

Gunmen shoot soldier at Canadian parliament, shots fired inside Parliament Hill

[HotAir.com] Update: 3rd site shooting; one gunman dead, soldier dies A gunman shot a Canadian soldier standing guard at a war memorial, then went inside the Parliament Hill building where the government convenes this morning. Dramatic video from the Globe and Mail shows police officers returning fire, which reportedly killed the suspect…

The crack of gunshots rang through the halls of Parliament Hill’s Centre Block on Wednesday after a gunman fired on soldiers guarding Canada’s main war memorial, sending MPs into hiding and all federal government buildings into lockdown.

Eyewitnesses said an armed man with long black hair emerged at the National War Memorial, fired about four times‎, and a guard went down. The gunman, who an eyewitness said was carrying what appeared to be a rifle, then ran toward Parliament Hill. … –Read More…

Hypocrisy is the Tribute Democrats Pay to Getting Elected

[RedState.com] Now of course, if you’ve paid attention to the news and you aren’t a bought and paid for partisan hack (or heck, probably even if you are one of those) you will recall that the last time we heard from this nefarious monster named “reconciliation” was… back when the Democrats used it to pass Obamacare. As Allahpundith notes:

Turns out history for the left didn’t begin on January 20, 2009 but rather in April 2010 or thereabouts. In fact, the ObamaCare omission here is so egregious, it reminds me in an odd way of those creepy liberal revisionist histories in which JFK somehow ends up dead at the hands of the right-wing city of Dallas while his left-wing assassin is conveniently airbrushed into oblivion. They used reconciliation to pass what’s arguably the most momentous piece of domestic policy of the past 50 years, and now, the instant Republicans use it for anything, the tactic will be deemed de facto cheating — despite endless leftist screeching since 2009 that we should probably go ahead and jettison the archaic 60-vote threshold for cloture entirely. You keep smiling, guys. –Read More…

This particular problem with Democrats’ dizzying changes of heart isn’t limited to “reconciliation” of course. Remember back when Democrats were threatening the absolute dissolution of the entire American Republic if Republicans ended the practice of judicial filibusters through the use of the so-called “nuclear option”? –Read More…

Ted Cruz Announces Presidential Agenda Disguised as Plan for GOP Congress

[National Journal] The Republican senator knows exactly what his party should do if it takes over Congress next year. It’s what he plans to do as president.

If the GOP sweeps Congress in November, Ted Cruz has a plan for his fellow congressional Republicans. But just underneath the proposed legislation and pointers on policy is a preview of Cruz 2016.

In an op-ed in USA Today, the Republican senator from Texas and near-certain 2016 presidential candidate laid out what he says should be congressional Republicans’ top priorities in 2015. The GOP now has a 68 percent chance of gaining the Senate in the midterms, according to The New York Times, and the party’s continued control of the House is all but assured. Cruz’s plan is ostensibly an action guide for his peers in Congress, 10 “critical priorities for the 2015 Congress.” –Read More…

The next Bill Ayers and his socialist Super PAC

[HumanEvents.com] Harvard Law School Professor Larry Lessig and President Barack Obama are birds of a feather. They both joined the faculty at the University of Chicago Law School in 1991 with similar goals and almost identical political objectives. They were part of the new wave of young radicals who wanted to use the law to reshape America and its culture. And they have worked in tandem in pursuit of their dreams ever since.

Fast forward to today and Lessig is focusing his energies on undermining a key pillar of American democracy, free speech. He has started the “SuperPAC to end all SuperPACs”. As he asserts in his own video: “we want to spend big money to end the influence of big money … embrace the irony.” Well, here’s something not so ironic, his PAC is called “MayDay PAC”, as in the annual holiday to celebrate socialism. MayDay bills itself as a “crowd-funded non-partisan Super PAC” that loads its staff with the far left and pays them with the “big money” they are so opposed to. Lenin would be ashamed.

It’s because of this dogmatic opposition to speech that Lessig’s MayDay PAC is opposing candidates who have supported conservative free-speech rights like Michigan’s Congressman Fred Upton. Indeed, it was recently reported that MayDay will spend $1.5 million to target Upton, whose support for constitutionally protected speech appears to be an unforgivable sin for MayDay apparatchiks. –Read More…

Politico Poll: 64% Believe America Is 'Out of Control'

[Breitbart.com] “An overwhelming majority of voters in the most competitive 2014 elections say it feels as if events in the United States are ‘out of control’ and expressed mounting alarm about terrorism, anxiety about Ebola and harsh skepticism of both political parties only three weeks before the Nov. 4 midterms,” reports Politico.

The poll, which surveyed states and districts in the most competitive congressional races, found that 64% of Americans believe “things in the U.S. feel like they are out of control right now.”

Specifically, the poll found that 84% of voters believe the Islamic State (ISIS) represents a “serious” threat to America. Just 12% said ISIS terrorists do not pose a serious threat. –Read More…

Democrats in About-Face, Now Calling for Ebola Travel Bans

[Newsmax.com] Democrats are now sounding more like Republicans on the Ebola crisis, with candidates in critical races calling this week for travel bans to avoid being tied to yet another Obama administration debacle as Election Day nears.

“It is just common sense that we need a travel ban from West Africa,” Democratic pollster and analyst Doug Schoen told Newsmax on Saturday. “And Democrats have realized that in tight Senate races that hang in the balance it is common sense, not partisanship, that gives them the best chance of getting elected.”

This is particularly acute “in a year where the president’s job approval is at or below 40 percent in swing states,” Schoen said.

Perhaps the biggest flip-flop came on Friday, when North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan called for a West African ban — two days after dismissing it as a way to contain the deadly disease. –Read More…

Ebola lapses persisted for days at Dallas hospital, medical records show

[FoxNews.com] Scores of staffers at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas were put at risk by lapses in the treatment of the first Ebola patient diagnosed in the U.S., the patient’s medical records show.

The medical records of Thomas Eric Duncan, given to the Associated Press by his family, provide a window of the span of exposure to the hospital’s workers in the early days of Duncan’s treatment.

The records show that because of a lag in implementing preventative measures or because of insufficient measures, multiple hospital staffers were put at risk.

The hospital’s protective protocol was “insufficient,” said Dr. Joseph McCormick of the University of Texas School of Public Health, who was part of the CDC team that investigated the first recorded Ebola outbreak in 1976. “The gear was inadequate. The procedures in the room were inadequate.” –Read More…

ISIS Training Pilots in Three Captured Jets: Syria Monitor

[Newsmax.com] Iraqi pilots who have joined Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria are training members of the group to fly in three captured fighter jets, a group monitoring the war said on Friday, saying it was the first time that the militant group had taken to the air.

The group, which has seized land in Syria and Iraq, has been flying the planes over the captured al-Jarrah military airport east of Aleppo, said Rami Abdulrahman, who runs the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human

U.S-led forces are bombing ISIS bases in Syria and Iraq. The group has regularly used weaponry captured from the Syrian and Iraqi armies and has overrun several military bases but this was the first time it had been able to pilot warplanes.

“They have trainers, Iraqi officers who were pilots before for (former Iraqi president) Saddam Hussein,” Abdulrahman said. –Read More…

See, I Told You So: Voters are Fed Up with Democrats, But They're Not Becoming Republicans

[RushLimbaugh.com] RUSH ARCHIVE: People are fed up with the Democrats. They’re fed up with Obamacare and foreign policy. They’re fed up with everything. They’re going to vote for the other guys. They’re not voting for conservatives. By necessity they’re voting Republican, but they’re not voting ideologically.

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about this. Eight years of Reagan and yet the voters are easily fooled to returning to liberalism. There was no protest when the liberals came along and started raising taxes, making everything worse, destroying jobs, what they always do, wrecking the culture. No protests. People voted for it. And my conclusion is that voters never, other than Reagan, the lone example, never affirmatively vote for conservatism because it’s never really presented to them. It’s presented to them by me and Fox News on some occasions and other so-called new media, but it’s not presented to voters by the Republican Party.

There are a few now and then, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio come to mind, but not the party. Voters never affirmatively vote for conservatism because it’s never really presented to them. What happens is liberals, Democrats are rejected for a time because people are fed up and they’re mad like they are now. But after a certain passage of time, they feel it’s safe to go back. –Read More…

Airline Offers Explanation for Unprotected Man Seen During Ebola Patient Transport

[TheBlaze.com] The man observing Wednesday’s transport of the Dallas nurse without a hazmat suit on was a “protocol supervisor” who wasn’t wearing protective gear for a “higher level of safety,” an airline representative said.

“Our medical professionals in the biohazard suits have limited vision and mobility and it is the protocol supervisor’s job to watch each person carefully and give them verbal directions to ensure no close-contact protocols are violated,” a Phoenix Air representative told ABC News. “There is absolutely no problem with this and in fact [e]nsures an even higher level of safety for all involved.” –Read More…

Frontier CEO to Employees: Nurse ‘May Have Been Symptomatic Earlier Than Suspected’

[PJMedia.com] Already under fire for its handling of the Ebola outbreak, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention dropped another bombshell when it was revealed that ill nurse Amber Vinson checked with the agency before boarding a flight from Cleveland to Dallas.

The CDC told ABC News they deemed it OK because she wasn’t throwing up:

A Dallas nurse who treated an Ebola patient contacted federal health officials before boarding a passenger flight Monday due to a slightly elevated temperature, but was allowed to board the flight because she was not exhibiting additional symptoms of Ebola. –Read More…

UFO sightings are on the rise: Should we prepare for an alien invasion?

[Examiner.com] UFO sightings are often seen as a joke, but it is almost an absolute certainty that some are real. If you believe some of the recent reports of UFO sightings, you are not alone. The most recent UFO sighting to top the headlines comes out of Wales. According to a report from Mirror on Oct. 11, sky watchers insisted they had seen tennis-balled sized UFOs, an exploding sixpence and a multi-coloured Malteser in the heavens.

Sightings of unidentified flying objects have soared in the last month. Dancing lights, large craft and mysterious flashes are among dozens of UFOs sighted in the skies of South Wales in recent years. And just a day ago, Wales Online reported that there have been 119 flying saucer sightings in Wales reported to the Ministry of Defense since 2000.

According to figures released under the Freedom of Information Act, the MoD has reviewed 13 reports of UFOs in South Wales in the last three years. Several other sightings have been placed on UFO websites, but it is believed that many more go unreported. The MoD examines UFO reports to determine if what is seen is of some importance for the defense.

[HumanEvents.com] A second health care worker who treated Ebola Patient One, the late Thomas Eric Duncan of Liberia, tested positive for the disease last night. It’s horrible news, but not entirely surprising to see more cases popping up now. This is how Ebola works – it takes a while to incubate. Anyone who told you there was nothing to worry about, because no one manifested symptoms in the first day or two after Duncan was isolated, was deliberately lying to you.

Happily, the first health care worker infected by Duncan, Nina Pham, is said to be in good condition. “I’m doing well and want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers,” she said in a statement on Tuesday. “I am blessed by the support of family and friends and am blessed to be cared for by the best team of doctors and nurses in the world here at Texas Presbyterian Hospital Dallas.” Part of her treatment involved a blood transfusion from an Ebola survivor, which sounds like the kind of treatment that might be difficult to administer if the outbreak spreads to a large number of additional victims.

Hopefully that will not happen, but the authorities are still grappling with how trained medical personnel wearing protective gear were able to contract the disease – which, you’ll recall, was supposed to be relatively difficult to catch even when untrained people without such equipment come into contact with Ebola victims. The latest chapter in the feud between Texas nurses and the increasingly uninspiring head of the Centers for Disease Control, Dr. Tom Frieden, saw the executive director of National Nurses United, RoseAnn DeMoro, alleging that “the protocols that should have been in place in Dallas were not in place, and those protocols are not in place anywhere in the United States, as far as we can tell.” Frieden had previously insinuated that Nurse Pham got herself infected by failing to follow these protocols – an accusation for which he has since apologized. –Read More…

Feds warn of possible ISIS-inspired attacks on police, government officials, media

[FoxNews.com] WASHINGTON – Federal officials are warning U.S. law enforcement about the threat of Islamic State-inspired terror attacks against police officers, government workers and “media figures” in the U.S.

In a joint intelligence bulletin sent to law enforcement and confirmed by Fox News, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security warned about the Islamic State’s calls on social media forums for violence.

A senior intelligence official told Fox News the bulletin was sent Saturday. “I requested it as a duty to warn and as an officer safety matter given ISIL’s continued statements on forums and in social media to conduct homeland attacks and to target law enforcement, government and intelligence agencies,” the official said, adding that “FBI investigator” was specifically mentioned in one post.

Ebola: Truth, Lies, Human Error, and Common Sense

[American Thinker] With daily headlines featuring the world “Ebola,” fear is in the air. Along with confusion.

Many Americans are worried about Ebola spreading and becoming a serious threat. And many of us are skeptical about what the Obama administration is saying on the matter. Which leaves a lot of people feeling uncertain.

ISIS militants take Iraq army camp, at least 30 dead as bombs grip Baghdad

[FoxNews.com] BAGHDAD – Militants with the Islamic State group on Monday claimed control of a key military training camp in Anbar province — which Iraqi officials called a “tactical retreat” — as a spate of deadly bombings shook Baghdad, hitting mostly Shiite neighborhoods and leaving at least 30 dead.

Meanwhile, Rami Abdul Rahman of the U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights told Fox News Monday that ISIS fighters hold as much as 50 percent of the Syrian border town of Kobani, which has been the focus of fierce fighting between ISIS and Kurdish forces, backed up by U.S.-led coalition airstrikes. The fall of Kobani would be a major victory for the Islamic State, and would raise new concerns that the Sunni militant group is making gains despite the airstrikes.

Rahman said that the militants are making moves from the east and southwest sides of the town and are trapping the Kurdish fighters in the center.

Other Fox News sources inside Kobani and in touch with the fight put the figure of ISIS-held territory lower, more in the range of 25 – 30 per cent. –Read More…

WHO Chief: Ebola Outbreak 'Most Severe Health Emergency in Modern Times'

[Newsmax.com] The Ebola outbreak is the “most severe acute health emergency in modern times,” the head of the World Health Organization warned Monday.

The agency’s director-general Margaret Chan said the epidemic had proved “the world is ill-prepared to respond to any severe, sustained, and threatening public health emergency”.

New cases of Ebola are now “rising exponentially” in the three hardest-hit countries, Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone,”

In a statement to a regional health conference in the Philippine capital Manila, she said: “I have never seen a health event threaten the very survival of societies and governments in already very poor countries.

Source: Secret deal could doom 160,000 to ISIS

[WND.com] WASHINGTON, D.C. – A secret decision apparently has been made by the United States, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and even Iran to let the strategic Syrian Kurdish town of Kobani on the Turkish-Syrian border fall to ISIS fighters, jeopardizing the lives of some 160,000 Syrian Kurds, WND has been told by a well-placed Middle East expert.

In letting Kobani fall to ISIS, the source said, there was agreement “to deal with ISIS later.”

The apparent decision aims to diminish the influence of the Kurds in Syria and weaken the prospect of creating a sovereign Kurdistan, which is sought by the Kurds not only in Syria, but in Turkey, Iran and Iraq.

“It is a real set up behind the backs of everyone,” the well-placed source told WND. –Read More…

CDC's Frieden: Ebola Biggest Challenge Since AIDS

[Newsmax.com] The Ebola outbreak is the worst disease crisis since the spread of AIDS, said the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“I would say that in the 30 years I’ve been working in public health, the only thing like this has been AIDS,” said Dr. Thomas Frieden during remarks at the World Bank and International Monetary Fund annual meeting in Washington, D.C., according to NBC News.

Frieden also warned that time is of the essence in preventing it from becoming “the next AIDS.”

Approximately 36 million people have died from AIDS since it broke out in the 1980s, and currently about 35 million people are infected by the virus, according to NBC News.

Rep urges White House to ‘come clean’ over Colombia prostitution scandal

[FoxNews.com] A Republican congressman on Thursday urged the White House to “come clean” after claiming to have received “very credible and very specific allegations” that a member of the White House team was “intimately involved with a prostitute” while on assignment in Colombia for a presidential visit.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, also questioned whether a double standard was at play, considering many Secret Service and military personnel were disciplined on that trip for seeing prostitutes and other inappropriate behavior.

“The White House needs to come clean,” Chaffetz told Fox News. He separately has written a letter to White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough seeking “all documents” from a White House counsel internal review of the incident. –Read More…

U.S. airstrike in Mosul underscores military questions ahead in dealing with Iraqi cities

[Washington Post] Shortly after retired U.S. Gen. John Allen arrived in Baghdad as the new U.S. envoy to the coalition against the Islamic State, he made it perfectly clear what part of the plan against the Islamic State militant group included: taking back Mosul.

The city, Iraq’s second most populous, fell to Islamist fighters in June, as they captured broad sections of the country’s north. Mosul has remained under their control since, with religious shrines destroyed, women forced into marriage and human rights activists and others murdered after publicly disagreeing with the Islamic State.

Plans to retake Mosul already are underway. Kurdish militia troops are preparing for a complex battle to retake the city, according to a Los Angeles Times report. And Allen said Iraqi forces will launch operations to retake Mosul within the next year. –Read More…

At least 10 ISIS fighters have been caught trying to cross the southern border

[HotAir.com] Via the Daily Caller, Ebola’s not the only threat potentially looming across the border. This is … quite a claim by Hunter. Has anyone else made it? Jim Geraghty notes that Dem Rep. Tim Bishop recently said that 40 of the 100 Americans who went to fight for ISIS have now returned and are being tailed by the FBI, but he didn’t say anything about how they got here.

Presumably they flew back and showed their U.S. passports at the gate; that capability is what makes ISIS a special threat. GOP Rep. (and Senate candidate) Tom Cotton has accused Mexican drug cartels of actively collaborating with ISIS, but it’s unclear if he has a government source for that info and in any case he hasn’t claimed that ISIS has already made an attempt to enter the United States. Hunter is the first member of Congress I’m aware of to say so, citing a source inside the Border Patrol. –Read More…

There Will Be Pestilences: Why Are So Many Deadly Diseases Breaking Out All Over The Globe Right Now?

[Infowars.com] Ebola, Marburg, Enterovirus and Chikungunya – these diseases were not even on the radar of most people coming into 2014, but now each one of them is making headline news. So why is this happening? Why are so many deadly diseases breaking out all over the world right now? Is there some kind of a connection, or is the fact that so many horrible diseases are arising all at once just a giant coincidence? And this could be just the beginning. For example, there are now more than a million cases of Chikungunya in Central and South America, and authorities are projecting that there will be millions more in 2015.

The number of Ebola cases continues to grow at an exponential rate, and now an even deadlier virus (Marburg) has broken out in Uganda. We have gone decades without experiencing a major worldwide pandemic, and many people believed that it could never happen in our day and time. But now we could potentially see several absolutely devastating diseases all racing across the planet at the same time.

On Monday, we got news that the first confirmed case of Ebola transmission in Europe has happened. A nurse in Spain that had treated a couple of returning Ebola patients has contracted the disease herself… –Read More…
