Bill Whittle: Ferguson and the Real Race War

Bill Whittle

Since the shooting of Michael Brown by a white policeman and the ensuing riots and looting in Ferguson, MO, Americans have been told, yet again, that there is an epidemic of crime against black people in this country. But is there really a race war, and if so, which side is actually waging it?

Cause of Action sues 12 departments that allowed White House to intervene in FOIA responses

The Washington Examiner

President Obama has claimed since his first day in the Oval Office that his administration would be “the most transparent” in history.

But the nonprofit watchdog group Cause of Action is challenging the Obama claim in a federal lawsuit against 12 federal agencies, including the Office of Management and Budget and the Internal Revenue Service.

The group says the departments complied with White House intervention in a manner that obstruct their compliance with the federal Freedom of Information Act and other laws and regulations requiring transparency and preservation of government documents.

The records Cause of Action hopes to receive though the lawsuit will reveal “whether and how the White House politicizes records requests sent to federal agencies,” the group said.

In addition to the OMB and IRS, the departments named in the Cause of Action suit include Homeland Security, Justice,Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, State, Veterans Affairs, Defense, Health and Human Services, Energy and the Treasury…

Report: EPA Exceeds Its Authority With Proposed Rules

Peter Fricke
The Daily Caller

Congress should use the appropriations process to reassert its authority over the Environmental Protection Agency, according to a Heritage Foundation issue brief released Tuesday.

The report, written by scholar Daren Bakst, identifies three issues on which the EPA has proposed rules and regulations that exceed its authority. In all three cases, Bakst recommends that Congress prohibit the agency from using its funding to implement the proposals.

According to the report, “the EPA is using the regulatory process to require greenhouse gas emission reductions even as Congress has been unwilling to take such drastic actions.” Bakst considers this alarming, because most energy use involves some emissions, meaning the proposed regulations would “touch on almost every facet of Americans’ lives.”…

Fast and Furious documents must be provided to Congress, judge rules

Associated Press

WASHINGTON – A federal judge has ordered the Justice Department to provide Congress with a list of documents that are at the center of a long-running battle over a failed law enforcement program called Operation Fast and Furious.

In a court proceeding Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson set an Oct. 1 deadline for producing the list to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

The Justice Department says the documents should remain confidential and President Obama has invoked executive privilege in an effort to protect them from public disclosure.

The House panel says the Justice Department documents might explain why the department took nearly a year to admit that federal agents had engaged in a controversial law enforcement tactic known as gun-walking.

The Justice Department has long prohibited the risky practice. But the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives used it with disastrous results in a federal law enforcement probe in Arizona, Operation Fast and Furious…

Perry Grand Juror is Democratic Party Activist, Sought Out a Grand Jury Witness While Serving

Erick Erickson

Media Trackers has the scoop. A grand juror in the Rick Perry grand jury is not only a Democratic activist, but was active in the party while on the grand jury.

Rho Chalmers, who disclosed to the Houston Chronicle yesterday that she was a member of the grand jury that indicted Texas Gov. Rick Perry, was an active delegate to the Texas Democratic Party convention during grand jury proceedings. Chalmers’ active participation in Democratic state politics is important because she claimed yesterday to the Houston Chronicle that her decision to indict Perry, a Republican, was not based on politics.

In fact, Chalmers participated in a Democratic Party event while serving on the grand jury…

Al Sharpton Led His First Anti-Semitic Race-Riot In Crown Heights, Twenty-Three Years Ago Today

On the job training for a professonal hater

Jeff Dunetz
Truth Revolt

Al Sharpton wasn’t always an unrepentant MSNBC star, advisor to president Obama, and first-in-line to agitate a racial situation anywhere in the country. Twenty-three years ago a tragic car accident in Crown Heights Brooklyn escalated into a pogrom against the Jewish people. The media usually gives it a politically correct description: “violence between the area’s Blacks and Jews.” But the violence was not two-sided. The Crown Heights riot was an attack on the Jews by the neighborhood’s Caribbean community, fueled in large part by Al Sharpton, the “Reverend”who does not believe in the commandment about “bearing false witness.”…

…Live feeds from Ferguson have already shown shop owners protecting their stores by standing guard at the entrances with guns; some shops that haven’t been looted or destroyed have actually been saved because of guns.

It’s called the 2nd Amendment of the Bill of Rights, something we still have in this country.

Beyond that, it’s sad and ironic that our president would even use the tragedy and subsequent fallout in Ferguson as an excuse to demonize guns in the hands of civilians…
