Media Hall of Shame: Sally Kohn Believes Discrimination Justifies Murder | Truth Revolt: CNN political commentator Sally Kohn was an easy choice for this week's Media Hall of Shame, not only for her vast body of progressive essays, but also her daily contributions to the Twitterverse. Most notably was her recent tweet after the two white journalists were murdered by a black former colleague in Virginia:

As that comment garnered understandable shock from those who read it, Kohn quickly went on the defensive against the accusation that she believed the killings to be justified:

Gridlock by Democrats and Republican on solving the problems posed by the spiraling costs of entitlements, namely Social Security and Medicare, has created a situation the Fed can't solve, Greenspan said in an interview on CNBC.

MDA Quietly Revises Projected Ballistic Missile Defense Ship Totals Down from FY 2016 Budget Request - USNI News

MDA Quietly Revises Projected Ballistic Missile Defense Ship Totals Down from FY 2016 Budget Request - USNI News: A recent change in how the U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) counts ballistic missile defense (BMD) ships lowers projected future totals from what the agency estimated in its Fiscal Year 2016 budget request to Congress, USNI News has learned.

Instead of 48 “BMD capable ships” the MDA estimated the U.S. would have by FY 2020 the force will be instead 39 “BMD deployable ships” — a difference of nine ships.

The change came during a conference between MDA and Navy officials in late June and was made to better align the agency with how the service counts its assets.

After stonewalling for days about the names of participants at the almost two-hour meeting with the president and his national security advisers — a meeting that was granted at the request of Muslim Advocates, an Islamist group that's demanded a stop to NYPD surveillance of radical mosques, anti-terrorist drone strikes and Gitmo detentions — the White House quietly attached the list of attendees to the back of its daily press briefing transcript Thursday evening, according to the Washington Times.

11:25 a.m.

As the county clerk, Kim Davis' signature usually appears on marriage licenses, but since she is jailed, her deputy clerks are handing out licenses with no signature.

The Rowan County attorney and lawyers for the gay couples who have sued to get marriage licenses say they are legal and valid despite the lack of a signature.

Davis was jailed Thursday by U.S. District Judge David Bunning because she refuses to issue licenses to gay couples. Bunning was asked during Davis' contempt hearing Thursday about the licenses being valid if Davis refuses to authorize them. He said it was up to the gay couples to take that chance.

While our president gets ready to push through his questionable nuclear deal with Iran, the Pentagon is acknowledging an inconvenient truth. The administration will field less of a ballistic-missile killing seaborne fleet than it promised Congress just a few months ago.

“Instead of 48 ‘BMD [ballistic missile defense] capable ships’ the MDA [Missile Defense Agency] estimated the U.S. would have by FY [fiscal year] 2020, the force will be instead 39 ‘BMD deployable ships’ — a difference of nine ships,” reports Sam LaGrone, the editor of USNI News.

CAIR Joins Black Lives Matter Movement - Breitbart

CAIR Joins Black Lives Matter Movement - Breitbart: The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has joined the Black Lives Matter movement.

As Michelle Moons reported, CAIR leaders and members joined Black Lives Matter in a march on the California State Capitol on Wednesday, targeting Gov. Jerry Brown’s office over a new bill that, in part, would expand bans on racial profiling to include perceived ethnicity.

As police officers are being targeted across the nation, CAIR has sided with their enemies.

That creates a serious problem for CAIR’s defenders, which argue that its associations with Islamic extremism can be overlooked because it helps law enforcement work with, and within, the Muslim community.

Denmark, for example, ranks higher than the US in business freedom, monetary freedom, investment freedom, financial freedom, property freedom and freedom from corruption.

Sweden isn’t doing as well as the United States when it comes to prospering. If they were a state, they’d be the seventh poorest.

Scandinavia isn’t a terrible place to live but it’s no utopia. In any case, this isn’t the socialism Bernie is talking about.

The Clintons have never taken a political hit lying down. But given their weak and panicky reactions to Mr. Obama’s current, well-orchestrated hit on her — the FBI investigation into her alleged mishandling of classified material as secretary of state — they have appeared to passively absorb the escalating attack. Until now.

As he presses his attack, Mrs. Clinton has two choices. Option one: fold early and negotiate a mild end to the investigation in exchange for dropping out of the race. But Mr. Obama is not a forgiving sort, and now that he’s drawn blood, he’s likely to go for the kill.

Open calls for the killing of police have been followed by assassinations, including last week's murder in Texas of a Harris County sheriff's deputy. Instead of dialing back the incendiary rhetoric, groups including "Black Lives Matter" have instead doubled down at demonstrations with chants of "Pigs in a blanket, fry em like bacon." Public safety officials fear the net effect has been to demonize police, and diminish the job.

Officer Randy Wheeler drew his firearm and ordered the suspect to keep his hands up and outside of the car — but it’s an incident that easily could’ve resulted in death or tragedy.

Trinity Police Chief Steven Jones said the police department chose to release video of Wheeler’s scary traffic stop from two different angles to prove a major point about the type of split-second decisions cops are forced to make on a daily basis.

Is HuffPo Suggesting That More Sexual Assaults Against Men Would Balance the Scales? | PJ Lifestyle

Is HuffPo Suggesting That More Sexual Assaults Against Men Would Balance the Scales? | PJ Lifestyle: Last Wednesday was “Women’s Equality Day,” but not all cries of gender discrimination are created equal.

In her article commemorating the special day (“7 Things To Know If You Think Women Are Equal To Men”), Huffington Post Deputy Editor Nina Bahadur wrote:

According to the CDC, an estimated 1 in 5 women in the United States has been raped in their lifetime, compared to 1 in 71 men. We need to put an end to all sexual assault — and understanding the gender discrepancy in the victims is one step towards elimination. (Emphasis added.)

Bahadur’s blanket call to end “all sexual assault” on both genders is a welcome reminder that equality means equality and not, say, toplessness, as so many women in Times Square construe.

But how is “understanding the gender discrepancy in the victims” a step toward eliminating sexual assault, as Bahadur claims?

She stopped issuing any licenses -- and defied an order from the state’s governor -- after the Supreme Court ruled in June that gay marriage is a constitutional right.

and former Alaska Governor Sarah Pain, will be a contributor next season on the show.

It’s 1968 Again: Crime an Issue for 2016 - Breitbart

It’s 1968 Again: Crime an Issue for 2016 - Breitbart: Crime is back.

Murder is up in New York City, New Orleans, D.C., Baltimore and Chicago, just to name a few Deep Blue hot spots.

For Democrats that’s a nightmare. Barack Obama is our President, but he’s their guy, and the cities are their base. Hope and change weren’t supposed to be so bloody, and so dystopic. Yet, sadly they are.

Midsummer murder | The Economist

Midsummer murder | The Economist: AT THE corner in West Baltimore where a burnt-out pharmacy sits as evidence of riots, Tay Wizzle, a 26-year-old student, explains why he thinks the murder rate has spiked. “It’s a decrease in police presence,” he says. “The police don’t patrol like they did before the riots. I think they’re purposely doing that to make themselves look innocent. They ain’t dumb, but they think everyone here’s stupid.” As he speaks, a police car arrives and two cops begin questioning a couple who were parked in a car with tinted windows. “I’ve been here an hour and that’s the first I’ve seen them,” says Mr Wizzle. “And they’re just fucking with people.”

#ThanksMichelleObama: School resumes — so do skimpy lunches - EAGnews.org: WASHINGTON, D.C. – Public schools across the country are throwing their doors open for another year of learning.

That can mean only one thing: the drudgery of school lunches influenced by Michelle Obama’s rules.

September 30 is the deadline for Congress to reauthorize — or change — the National School lunch Program. The program was changed dramatically in 2010 when the Democratically-controlled Congress passed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act — legislation that was championed by First Lady Michelle Obama.

Those members of Congress who are concerned about the success of the program may want to challenge their colleagues to taste test a sampling of these “creations.”

Dark Matter May Be More Complex Than Physicists Thought | WIRED

Dark Matter May Be More Complex Than Physicists Thought | WIRED: Dark matter—the unseen 80 percent of the universe’s mass—doesn’t emit, absorb or reflect light. Astronomers know it exists only because it interacts with our slice of the ordinary universe through gravity. Hence the hunt for this missing mass has focused on so-called WIMPs—Weakly Interacting Massive Particles—which interact with each other as infrequently as they interact with normal matter.

On foot, helicopter and horseback, ArmySpecial Forces showed that if the U.S. was to win a long counterinsurgency war against Islamic extremists, the special skills of Green Berets would be fundamental.

Nearly 14 years later, these soldiers, some of the military’s smartest and best trained, are still creating lots of headlines, but not necessarily for heroics.
