There are so many implications to consider if the witness changed his story. Is this accurate... or more diabolical nonsense?
Via the Epoch Times: “Dorian Johnson, Witness in Michael Brown Shooting, Allegedly Changed His Initial Story; Radio Station Backs Off Claims.”
Johnson’s claims came under additional scrutiny after a medical examiner’s report said that the six bullets that hit Brown all hit him from the front, as opposed to the back.

Some conservatives hate this New York Times piece, and I don’t blame them since it begins with a heavy dose of moral relativism:
The beheading of American journalist James Foley by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, has rightly provoked global condemnation of the insurgent group and its horrific tactics. Yet it has also led to a disturbing return of the moralistic language once used to describe Al Qaeda in the panicked days after the 9/11 attacks.
In an eerie echo of President George Read more [...]
We don’t have victory yet, but the no free speech zone in Maine is now being assaulted. As reported in LifeNews.com,
The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), a national public interest law firm, based in Ann Arbor, MI, filed a federal lawsuit yesterday challenging Portland, Maine’s Ordinance 17-108, which creates a 39-foot “buffer zone” around Portland’s one abortion clinic, Portland Health Center which is run by Planned Parenthood of Northern New England. Portland attorney, Stephen C. Whiting, Read more [...]
It's always good to hear that there is at least one government agency that's doing its job, working for the people.
But it's also very discouraging to realize that nothing is likely to come of it.
The General Accounting Office has issued an official report that flat-out states that the Obama Administration broke the law in swapping five Guantanamo Bay terrorist inmates for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl by an Islamic terror group.
"[The Department of Defense] violated section 8111 because Read more [...]
One mark of a nanny state is that it second guesses the decisions of parents. But maybe that’s what we want.
I’ve posted about the Debra Harrell monstrosity thinking that everyone would recognize that the way she was treated is wrong and the charges leveled against her are ridiculous. Perhaps I am out of step.
According to Lenore Skenazy at Reason.com, Americans want to criminalize allowing children to play unsupervised:
A whopping 68 percent of Americans think there should be a law Read more [...]
The Washington Times reports on some Armed African Americans.
Black gun-rights activists in Texas protested police brutality Wednesday by exercising their rights to openly carry firearms through the streets of South Dallas.
Dozens of members of the newly-formed Huey P. Newton Gun Club, named after the co-founder of the Black Panther Party, marched with rifles, shotguns and AR-15s down MLK Boulevard. They wound up at a restaurant where police officers were eating lunch, Reason magazine reported.
Police Read more [...]
With the latest pontification from the professional unbeliever, Richard Dawkins, I am reminded of the rule for internet debate: the first person to call the other a Nazi loses the argument.
That rule doesn’t apply to Dawkins when he argues on the internet. He really is a Nazi or something so close that it is equally hideous.
As the Daily Mail reports, “Atheist author Richard Dawkins says unborn babies with Down's syndrome should be aborted and parents should ‘try again’”

I have to admit I had lost hope that we would hear more about the Fast and Furious scandal. While this only inches us a tiny way toward a true revelation of what the what Barack Obama and Eric Holder knew and when they knew it, it is still a positive development. While journalists have sometimes uncovered new aspects of Fast and Furious, it has been quite some time, as far as I can tell, since we have had news from the courts.
But now this from CNS News: “Judge Orders DOJ to Provide List Read more [...]
That may seem like an odd question to ask. After all, everyone knows Jesus. At least that is what they tell me when we’re out on the streets.
Everyone knows Jesus. Everyone! Even the strippers who showed up with boobs-a-blazing outside of a church in Warsaw, Ohio, claim to “know” Jesus. This was the second week in a row that their tattooed titties were on full public display for all of America to see.
Some call it indecent exposure (and trust me, these are not top-shelf Read more [...]
Worry seems to be at an all-time high in America.
According to recent polls about 80 percent of Americans think the country is on the wrong track, 59 percent think the American dream is “unachievable” for their children, and 60 percent believe the United States is a nation in decline.
Last week, best-selling author Joel C. Rosenberg spoke at my home church. He laid out the moral and fiscal case for why America is headed for an implosion unless there is a Third Great Awakening, which would Read more [...]
So Muslims say Allah is so great. But why do people in the so-called "Islamic State" convert to Islam? Typically, it's because a knife is put to their throat, or a gun to their head. Allah is obviously a pretty pathetic excuse for a “god” if this is the kind of “conversions” he accepts.
Contrast that with this interesting summary of a study on why Muslims come to Jesus Christ, and become Christians.
Since a reader had posted a query as to why Roman Catholics were not participating in Read more [...]
Is Eric Holder using race? From his own perspective, probably not. It isn’t hard to believe that African Americans have suffered more indignities on average than European Americans. So the growth of unaccountable police power would fall on them disproportionately. So he may sincerely believe what he is saying. But it is also easy to believe that such suffering leads to false conclusions.
I think of this as I read a Fox News report: “Holder says he understands mistrust of police as Ferguson Read more [...]
