A grand jury recommended clearing one Atlanta-area cop in the fatal shooting of a man seeking help, but couldn’t reach an agreement about another police officer’s killing of an unarmed man in controversial circumstances.

The DeKalb County grand jury said the district attorney shouldn’t indict DeKalb Officer Joseph Pitts for the December killing of Kevin Davis, 44, who had called 911 seeking help because his girlfriend had been stabbed.

President Barack Obama and House Speaker Paul Ryan haven’t had a face-to-face meeting in more than two-and-a-half years. And despite Ryan’s election this week and Obama’s congratulatory call to him in advance of the vote, there still isn’t one scheduled.

But the two already have a good sense of each other — and beside John Boehner, Ryan’s probably the House Republican Obama’s spent the most time with. And if Obama had to pick a House Republican to be speaker, people who know the president say he’d probably have voted for Ryan himself. There isn’t a close runner-up.   Continue reading “Obama and Ryan: Covert collaborators”

During a rare after-midnight session on October 30, the Republican–controlled Senate voted 64 to 35 to pass the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015, which began its life in the Republican-controlled House as H.R. 1314.

Anna from “Frozen” and Captain Phasma from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” are now U.S. citizens. So are a hot dog, a butterfly, a SWAT team officer and a mini-Donald Trump.

Or, at least, their likenesses are. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services hosted a special naturalization ceremony on Friday for children whose parents recently became U.S. citizens. Since it was the day before Halloween, the kids were invited to wear costumes and go trick-or-treating around the offices afterward.   Continue reading “Cinderella, A Hot Dog And A Mini-Donald Trump Just Became U.S. Citizens”

On January 6, 2004, Senator Charles Schumer and I challenged the erroneous idea that jobs offshoring was free trade in a New York Times op-ed. Our article so astounded economists that within a few days Schumer and I were summoned to a Brookings Institution conference in Washington, DC, to explain our heresy. In the nationally televised conference, I declared that the consequence of jobs offshoring would be that the US would be a Third World country in 20 years.   Continue reading “US On Road To Third World”

John Killen, a long time patriot. And his family are being attacked by the Kentucky CPS via Florida CPS. Florida has asked Kentucky to look into the matter. In other words, a fishing expedition involving 3 children, ages 3.5, and who are Mr. Killen’s grandchildren.

An anonymous call to CPS stating the children were playing in the yard and one was dirty is what started this situation. (Did you get dirty as a child playing??? Of course you did.)   Continue reading “Alert Alert Alert”
