Craigie, those are extremely difficult questions for many blacks to comprehend, much less two questions. Your just going to have to accept that your intelligence level is not up to the task and move on. As Hillary would say, "Get over it, what difference does it make now".
CNN News on the hunt to track down Officer Wilson and disclose his location. Next they will be offering a reward after the media disclosed his home location.
Few outside Wilson's family and authorities know for sure.
Wilson owns a house in a modest neighborhood about 20 miles from Ferguson. He bought the house shortly after he was divorced last year, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
But several neighbors have told CNN that Wilson left home before his name was released last week.
What are his neighbors saying about his whereabouts?
Not much. Most have shunned reporters' requests for interviews, and some put signs in their yards shooing away journalists.
"We don't know anything ... Pray for Peace," one read, according to the Post-Dispatch.
"We have 2 children. Do not knock!! No comment," another family wrote.
Any trails on social media?
The newspaper reported that Wilson deactivated his social media accounts before his name went public.
The only social media presence for him now is from supporters, who have set up Facebook pages to support and raise money for him.
Posts express frustration about not being heard in the media and allege a lack of support for Wilson and law enforcement.
Has he contacted his friends? On and on it goes...
They had this meeting recorded on the 8th green.
Top U.S. military brass and former administration officials are publicly pressuring the White House to consider taking the fight against the Islamic State into Syria, warning that the terror organization poses an unprecedented threat to the United States.
"ISIL is as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen. They're beyond just a terrorist group," Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Thursday, adding that the U.S. will have to take a "cold, steely hard look" and "get ready."
Hagel and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey spoke in ominous terms as they addressed the growing danger posed by the organization that aims to form a caliphate across northern Iraq and Syria, and possibly beyond.
Their comments suggested something more than a "limited" military mission -- as the White House says is being pursued in Iraq -- is ultimately needed to blunt, and defeat, the Islamic State.
You know, the guy is on TV more than Jay Leno was. Think people just getting sick of eating and sleeping Obama. Well Hillary tried to put that one over before and it didn't work, and doubt it will now. She carries more baggage than an elephants rear end, and about as charming.
President Obama doesn’t let ISIS keep him off golf course, as he plays a second straight day on Martha’s Vineyard Thursday.
There are so many reasons, too many, why the American people now think Barack Obama is about as good at being President as he is at hitting a golf ball. His reaction to the execution of journalist James Foley in front of the world is just the latest. When the going gets tough, the tough really do go golfing.
He reacts about as well to the hideous death of Foley as his administration has to the growing threat of ISIS. Even some of the slow thinkers around this President ought to be able to figure that out by now.
So now Foley is dead and ISIS is threatening to kill more of ours and this isn’t George W. Bush’s problem, or his fault. It is the problem — and more than somewhat the fault — of this administration. President Obama has to wear this one, and in this case that does not mean the golf clothes he wears on Martha’s Vineyard.
Once again, in a moment of horror for this country he seems almost weirdly detached. It was no different when radicals in Ukraine shot a passenger jet out of the sky and killed hundreds of innocent people, and Obama originally spent less than a minute on that in a speech in Delaware before returning to his prepared text, and then more fund-raising after that.
The country believes less and less in his ability to do what he was hired to do — actually lead — and to connect with both the fear and the anger about an event like this. Once more he seems to be counting the days until he is an ex-President, when his whole life becomes rhetoric and speeches instead of actual leadership.
Of course nothing he was going to do on Wednesday was going to bring back Foley, or stop ISIS dead in its tracks. But he should have waited at least one day before hitting the links with his buddies. The roll out of Obamacare was smarter than this. NYDailyNews via Google News
In January, President Barack Obama dismissed the terrorist group ISIS as a "JV Team" that didn't pose a real threat to America.
“The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant. I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.”
The remarks made in an interview with New Yorker may very well come back to haunt Obama as the latest ISIS atrocities come to light.
Tuesday, a video apparently showing the barbaric beheading of American journalist James Foley at the hands of ISIS was posted to YouTube under the heading "A Message To America." The video also included the al Qaeda affiliated group making an audacious challenge to President Obama after showing Journalist Steven Joel Sotloff on camera:
The continued judgement of this President is, well uncanny, don't you think?
"You haven't had a decent response to anything"? Craigie, reason being is you can't understand anything he posts. You really need help with your reading skills for understanding facts.
President Obama has few remaining friends—either in his own party or in the media.
That’s the unmistakable conclusion of two pieces this week in the New York Times. Just about everyone, it seems, is down on his single, solitary nature.
I’ve been saying for a year now that the president’s liberal media allies have soured on him. It started with the ObamaCare debacle and continued through his seeming passivity or slow reaction time in the wake of the VA scandal, the Bowe Bergdahl mess, the military collapse in Iraq and so on. At this point they’re basically Waiting for Hillary.
What is striking now is a growing sense, fairly or unfairly, that Obama is not capable of rising to the occasion, that he just doesn’t like politics, that he’s disengaged, that despite his soaring rhetoric in 2008 he has a passion deficit.
All the criticism about him playing golf and being at Martha’s Vineyard is kind of a code for his supposedly being unplugged from the job.
A Times news story opens with a killer anecdote about the president meeting with Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell, which turned to Democratic complaints that the GOP was bottling up a number of Obama’s ambassadorial nominees.
“Mr. Obama quickly dismissed the matter. ‘You and Mitch work it out,’ Mr. Obama said coolly, cutting off any discussion. Mr. Reid seethed quietly for the rest of the meeting.”
Wow. And the nut graph: “Nearly six years into his term, with his popularity at the lowest of his presidency, Mr. Obama appears remarkably distant from his own party on Capitol Hill, with his long neglect of would-be allies catching up to him.
“In interviews, nearly two dozen Democratic lawmakers and senior congressional aides suggested that Mr. Obama’s approach has left him with few loyalists to effectively manage the issues erupting abroad and at home and could imperil his efforts to leave a legacy in his final stretch in office.”
'Only seen on FNC'
" marijuana SLOWS your reflexes"? Brown's reflexes in the store video don't seem to square up with your 'unbiased' opinion's. Nor did it seem to slow him when he was beating the officers face in either.
I have some how missed they released Brown had marijuana in his system. That can effect a persons judgement. Last I heard is was illegal in Missouri. Wow, strong arm robber, perhaps gang member, using illegal drugs? Sweet 'Kid'.
Name a source that says he had marijuana in his system!! Nothing has been released on what he had in his system. If anything it would have been crack, as drug of choice for blacks, as you well know. Of course you don't use it as the VA won't give it to you for free.
Congressional investigators say the Pentagon violated the law when it swapped five Taliban leaders for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was held prisoner in Afghanistan for five years.
The nonpartisan Government Accountability Office says the Defense Department's failure to notify the relevant congressional committees at least 30 days in advance of the exchange broke the law.
The GAO also says the Pentagon's use of funds to conduct the transfer, when no money was available, was a violation of the Antideficiency Act which bars spending by agencies above the amount of money that Congress has obligated.
In May, five senior Taliban were released from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in exchange for Bergdahl, who had disappeared in 2009. Under exchange terms, the five Taliban are to remain in Qatar for a year.
The only stand he will be on, will be for robbery and lying to the police. He sure not going to be called to the grand jury as a witness.
According to the Post-Dispatch, the president of the local chapter of the NAACP knew about the charges against Johnson, but the fact that he was guilty of lying to the police didn’t matter:
Adolphus Pruitt, president of the St. Louis NAACP chapter, which has been encouraging witnesses to come forward, said Johnson’s false report case “doesn’t concern me.”
“He’s been very clear about what occurred, and now we have … four others stating facts that support the statements he’s been making,” Pruitt said. “Why would that diminish other accounts that are relatively the same?”
Of course not! Fine upstanding citizen he is. We can see what an open minded person Mr Pruitt is, and the NAACP must be proud to call him one of their own.
