Could This Be A Plot To Kill The President.

A police sergeant in Arizona who got into hot water for posting a picture on his Facebook account featuring an bullet-marked image of President Obama was demoted and suspended, according to officials.

Pat Shearer, who took the picture, will be demoted to the rank of officer and suspended without pay for two weeks. "We expect our employees to exercise sound judgment and not bring discredit upon our police department," Police Chief Roy Minter said in a written statement.

The Secret Service began an investigation into the photograph, but told Reuters that it was not pursuing any action against Shearer. The phot depicted a group of seven teenagers holding firearms and holding a t-shirt with Shepard Fairley's famous portrait of Obama. The shirt appeared to be shot through with bullets. The Secret Service investigates all threats against a president, even ones made in jest.

The Klan Is On The Rise Again, The Mid-west Is The New South.

The KKK says their membership is “booming” in Colorado, with 12 white supremacist groups active in the state, according to a report by The Durango Herald.

Herald staff writer Chase Olivarius-McAllister reported earlier this week that Cole Thornton, Imperial Grand Wizard of Colorado’s United Northern and Southern Knights Ku Klux Klan group, claims that membership has grown steadily in the past few years.

“I’m really pleased with the kind of people we’re getting in – college-educated, professionals, teachers – even a couple congressmen. People would be amazed to know who I’ve talked with at midnight in isolated areas – it’s almost comical,” Thornton said to the Durango Herald.

A study by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a nonprofit civil rights organization based in Montgomery, found that the number of "radical right groups" in America -- including hate groups, "Patriot" groups and nativist groups -- increased in 2010 for the second year in a row

Number One Place To Find Cocaine, Is Not In The Ghetto

Colombia can keep its title this year as the world's number one producer of cocaine.

According to the International Narcotics Control Board's 2011 report released today, 62,000 hectares -- 620 million square meters -- of Colombian land was devoted to the cultivation of the illicit narcotic in 2010. That amount is equivalent to more than 57,000 soccer fields.

Though the area decreased by 11,000 hectare, or 15 percent, from 2009, Colombia still encompasses the largest portion of South America's 154,200 hectares of illicit coca bush cultivation. Peru follows closely behind with 61,200 hectares, and Bolivia houses 31,000 hectares.

Gov. Brewer Says " Romney Is The Right Man", because He Isn't Black.

With Mitt Romney's victory in the Arizona GOP primary on Tuesday, Jan Brewer became the first Republican governor to endorse the winning candidate in his or her own state.

Brewer, who became the governor of the Grand Canyon State in 2009, announced her support for the former Massachusetts governor on NBC's "Meet the Press" earlier this week.

"I think he's the man that can carry the day," she said Sunday. "Mitt is by far the person that can go in and win."
According to a PPP poll conducted earlier in February, Brewer's endorsement could have been a decisive factor for some voters. About 25 percent of likely Republican voters polled said they would be more likely to vote for a candidate who had Brewer's stamp of approval.

Blacks Are Not Citizens, President Obama Can't Be President Because He Is " Mulatto."

A new lawsuit filed by an Alaska man aims to remove President Barack Obama from the state's ballot, arguing that Obama is not a "natural born citizen" because he is African-American.
The complaint, filed last week by Juneau resident Gordon Warren Epperly, reads:
As stated above, for an Individual to be a candidate for the office of president of the United States, the candidate must meet the qualifications set forth in the United States Constitution and one of those qualifications is that the Candidate shall be a "natural born citizen" of the United States. As Barack Hussein Obama II is of the "mulatto" race, his status of citizenship is founded upon the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Before the [purported] ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment, the race of "Negro" or "mulatto" had no standing to be citizens of the United States under the United States Constitution."
While many have posited that the "birther" movement, whose followers believe that Obama was born in Kenya and is therefore ineligible for the presidency, has racist overtones, this is perhaps the most blatant attempt by a member of the birther fold to remove Obama from office strictly because of his race.

Facebook becomes Your New Dope Man Hook-Up.

Illegal "Internet pharmacies" are using social media to market drugs to young people, an international report said on Tuesday.

The International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), which monitors the implementation of U.N. drug control conventions, said illicit drugs as well as prescription medicines were being ordered online from such unscrupulous operations.

"Disturbingly, illegal Internet pharmacies have started to use social media to publicize their websites, which can put large audiences at risk of dangerous products," INCB President Hamid Ghodse said in a statement accompanying its 2011 report.

He told a news conference in London that the rogue pharmacists used social media such as YouTube or Facebook to draw people to chatrooms and engage them "in a variety of ways which, in the first instance, you do not see as that they are marketing the drug....then of course they are bombarding them with the sort of drugs."

Catholic Church Priest Denied Communion To Lesbian Girl, While Still Giving It To Child Molestring Priest

The family of a Gaithersburg woman buried this weekend is describing what they call a “disgusting” scene at her funeral Mass, where the priest denied Communion to the woman’s lesbian daughter — beside the coffin — and then left the altar while she was delivering a eulogy.

The Rev. Marcel Guarnizo, a priest at St. John Neumann Catholic Church in Gaithersburg, put his hand over the cup and the wafers and told Barbara Johnson, a Mount Rainier artist, that she could not receive Communion “because she was living with a woman in a state of sin,” Larry Johnson said of the incident involving his sister.

“She just walked away, clearly stunned,” he recalled.

The scene at the Saturday morning funeral of Loetta Schoenholz Johnson has picked up fast fuel around the blogosphere, and the Catholic Archdiocese of Washington is commenting only with a brief statement that says the priest’s actions were against “policy” and that officials would be looking into the incident as a personnel issue.

Warren Buffett Tell Gov. Chris Christie That He Will Write Him A Check; Paying By The Pound.

Warren Buffett hit back at Chris Christie on Monday, sarcastically saying that the New Jersey governor's suggestion that the billionaire investor "just write a check and shut up" was a "touching response."

Buffet's comments came in response to an interview Christie gave CNN last week. Referring to Buffett's suggestion that the wealthiest Americans be taxed at a higher rate, the New Jersey governor said that Warren "should just write [the government] a check and shut up."

"It's sort of a touching response to a $1.2 trillion deficit, isn't it?" said Buffett in an interview Monday with CNBC. "That somehow the American people will all send in checks and take care of it?"

Latinos Could Turn GOP Dream Into A Nightmare

On the tails of TIME Magazine's controversial cover that predicts Latinos will decide the 2012 election, three Latino advocacy groups are determined to make the prediction a reality by registering 200,000 new Latino voters in 24 states before November.

The Hispanic Federation, the Labor Council for Latin America Advancement (LCLAA) and the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), announced in a press conference a coalition project called Movimiento Hispano (or Hispanic Movement, in English). The initiative is to be "a nonpartisan, culturally competent virtual tool that will guide citizens on how to register to vote and engage civically online."

Their hopes to register new voters are in part spurred by the "incendiary rhetoric of the Republicans and conservative groups against legalizing undocumented immigrants," according to a report by Fox News Latino.

Rick Santorum Say Just Blame It On The Black Man

Rick Santorum told a story Monday morning of a recent trip to Tioga, N.D., a burgeoning oil town that he said reminded him of a very far-off place, for which he blamed the Obama administration's regulators.

"It's a boom town. They're drilling everywhere. They're being overwhelmed by the growth there. But you can't find a builder to come in and build homes. You can't find anybody to invest in Tioga, North Dakota. Why? Because they're afraid the government's going to shut it down," Santorum said.

Builders, Santorum contended, "don't want to risk it. So they're building temporary structures that feel like you're in Afghanistan, because investors are afraid of what government might do."

Every Weed Head Is Moving To Colorado, Here Comes Ron Paul.

A group of marijuana activists seeking recreational use legalization for adults in Colorado expects to hear if they gathered enough signatures for a pot legalization question to appear on the 2012 ballot, the Associated Press reports.

In January, the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol turned in more than 160,000 signatures in favor of the legalization initiative -- nearly double the 86,000 signatures required to put the question of pot legalization on the 2012 ballot, The Denver Post reported. However, the Colorado Secretary of State's office determined that the activists fell short by about 2,400 verifiable signatures after conducting a random sample of the signatures that showed only roughly 50 percent of the signatures handed in were valid. Colorado state law requires that a random signature sample meet a certain threshold of validity or it triggers an automatic review.

Mitt Romney Lied About Being There, When He Wasn't Born.

Mitt Romney came under criticism Monday for recalling a seminal moment from his childhood in Detroit that actually took place nine months before he was born.

Mitch Potter of the Toronto Star on Monday questioned a tale that the former Massachusetts governor recently told to a Tea Party crowd of attending the Golden Jubilee. Romney told the gathering in Milford, Mich., he was "probably 4 or something" at the time of the jubilee, which attracted 750,000 people to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the American automobile. There was just one problem.

College Is An Indoctrination Mill, So Be A Dummy Like Rick Santorum.

Making the rounds of the Sunday news shows, Rick Santorum reaffirmed his criticism of President Barack Obama as "a snob" for supporting a platform of universal higher education.

The former Pennsylvania senator argued that Obama's encouragement of students to go to college ignored both the reality and ambitions of those who wanted to pursue more technical careers. In an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press," he sounded a more conspiratorial note. Two days after calling colleges "indoctrination mills," Santorum suggested that the president's encouragement of college degrees was a back-door effort at philosophical base building.

"Barack Obama is a person of the left," he said. "He is someone who believes in big government. He believes in the values that are, unfortunately, the dominant values, and political values, and overly politicized values, and politically correct values that are on most college and university campuses."

Like Most White America, Rick Santorum Can't Admit When Their Wrong.

Republican presidential contender Rick Santorum accused President Barack Obama of "weakness" on Sunday for apologizing to the Islamic world over the U.S. military's recent burning of Qurans in Afghanistan.

The destruction of copies of the Muslim holy book has outraged much of the international Islamic community, and Obama apologized for what the American government has described as the inadvertent disposal of Qurans in a fire. Santorum's latest rhetorical attack on the president follows his recent questioning of Obama's religion, in which Santorum claimed Obama subscribes to a "phony theology."

During a Sunday appearance on ABC News, Santorum said that Obama should not have apologized for the holy book destruction because the U.S. military had only accidentally burned Qurans. Santorum then added that Obama's apology, rather than the actual burning of Qurans, was hurting both the image of America abroad and the U.S. military mission in Afghanistan.

Mitt Romney Gets Endorsement From America Most Disrespectful Governor.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer endorsed Mitt Romney ahead of her state's Republican presidential primary on Tuesday.

"I think he's the man that can carry the day," Brewer said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "Mitt is by far the person that can go in and win."

Brewer says she had looked at all the candidates and decided to endorse the former Massachusetts governor because his business background appealed to her.

"I think that he handles himself very very well, he has that pro-business background, he has that political history, that he would serve America the best of all the candidates," Brewer said.

Rick Stantorum Wants To Be Pastor Of America.

Rick Santorum on Sunday took on separation of church and state.

"I don't believe in an America where the separation of church and state are absolute," he told 'This Week' host George Stephanopoulos. "The idea that the church can have no influence or no involvement in the operation of the state is absolutely antithetical to the objectives and vision of our say that people of faith have no role in the public square? You bet that makes me want to throw up."

The GOP candidate was responding to comments he made last October. He had said that he "almost threw up" after reading JFK's 1960 speech in which he declared his commitment to the separation of church and state.

GOP Will To Put Anyone In White House Beside President Obama.

With the Republican presidential nomination still up in the air, the possibility of a brokered convention is looking increasingly likely. Under the party’s rules, the delegates won by Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, and the others in the primaries and caucuses are obligated to vote for their assigned candidate only on the first ballot. If no candidate wins the required number of votes, the delegates can throw their support to anyone. There’s speculation that party insiders, unhappy with the current field, might float the candidacy of someone not now in the race, like New Jersey Governor Chris Christie or Jeb Bush.

Newt Gingrich Can't Even Defend His Home State From Romney

Only a month ago, Newt Gingrich was atop the Republican presidential race. Now he is in a fight for a win even in his home state of Georgia as his campaign stakes its future on the Super Tuesday primaries.

Two polls out of three in recent days show Gingrich running a close race in the state with either Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum, who is making inroads with the large number of evangelical Republicans in Georgia. But he will take hope that one of those polls gave him a healthy lead of 13 percentage points over Santorum and 19 over Romney

A loss in Georgia, the biggest of the 10 states holding contests on Super Tuesday on March 6, would deal a severe blow to any chance Gingrich has of winning the Republican nomination.

Romney Wife Says It Time She Put On The Pants.

Mitt Romney's inability to interact with humans has gotten so bad that even his wife is now joking about it.

"Maybe I should just do all the talking and let him just stand here and watch me," she told a crowd on Saturday. "I've also decided: No more debates. If we're going to do another debate, he's going to sit in the audience and watch me. And that'll be it."

Her comments came at a campaign stop in Troy, Michigan. The Michigan primary will be a key crossroads for Romney, who is in danger of losing his frontrunner status after several recent national polls show him trailing Rick Santorum.

Rick Santorum Hides His True Faith To Win Votes, While Attacking Presidents Obama On His.

Rick Santorum's political good fortune in the Republican presidential primaries has come about in large part because of his appeal to evangelicals. A Roman Catholic, he is a beneficiary of more than two decades of cooperation between conservative Protestants and Catholics who set aside theological differences for the common cause of the culture war.

Doctrine – and anti-Catholic bias – once split Protestants and Catholics so bitterly that many evangelical leaders worked to defeat John F. Kennedy because of his religion. When Kennedy sought to confront suspicion about his Catholicism, he made his now-famous faith speech to the Greater Houston Ministerial Association, a group of evangelical Protestants in Texas. Five decades later, when some prominent evangelical leaders gathered at a Texas ranch to discuss backing a 2012 GOP candidate, Santorum was their choice.

Wisconsin GOP Gov. Walker Fears President Obama Will Win State, That's Why State Has Jim Crow Voter ID Law.

Mitt Romney will “do very well” in Wisconsin if he wins the Republican presidential nomination, Governor Scott Walker said, although President Barack Obama has the edge heading into the November election.

Walker, a 44-year-old Republican who took office after the 2010 elections that also gave the party a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, said “conventional wisdom” in his state is that Romney will face Obama. The president stands to gain from any improvement in the economy, he said.

“Any time you have an incumbent, it’s always an uphill battle,” Walker said on Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt,” airing this weekend.

“If they feel like we’re headed toward greater prosperity not only in Wisconsin, but across the country, then I think the president’s going to continue,” Walker said.

Gov. Jan Brewer Continue To Show Disrespect To President Obama, By Refusing To Eat At A Blackman's Table.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R), in town for the National Governors Association conference, will skip a White House dinner Sunday honoring the nation's governors, telling staff she does not want to participate in a "social" event.

The dinner, an annual event hosted by President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, is one of the conference's highlights. Brewer's decision comes a month after she dramatically confronted the president at a Phoenix area airport over his response to her portrayal of him in her book.

"I'm not," Brewer told The Huffington Post when asked whether she would attend the dinner.

Bill Maher Put Money Were Mouth Is

Stephen Colbert may not support the idea of super PACs, but fellow political satirist Bill Maher is buying into the system -- literally.

During a performance of his comedy special "CrazyStupidPolitics" Thursday night, Maher announced a gift of $1 million to Priorities USA Action, an Obama-supporting super PAC. While he mocked the group's clunky name, saying it was "named by Borat," his publicist said that Maher was deadly serious about the donation and believed a second term for Obama was “worth a million dollars."

GOP Super PACs like Restore Our Future, which supports Mitt Romney, have allowed major donors to pump massive sums into the Republican presidential primary. President Obama was a long-time critic of the groups, but the threat of their fundraising power prompted a controversial change of heart earlier this month.

Why Are Black & Latino Students The Only Ones Arrested By NYPD?

An average of 5 students were arrested each day in New York City schools during the last three months of 2011, new NYPD data reveals. And of those students, a staggering 90 percent were black or latino.

In accordance with the School Safety Act passed by City Council--which requires the NYPD to release the school arrest statistics every three months--the NYPD released this report showing that from October 1 to December 31 of 2011, 279 students were arrested and another 532 students were issued summonses, mostly for disorderly conduct.

Despite comprising only 29 percent of the student population, black students made up 60 percent of the arrests while latinos, made up 30 percent. 75 percent of those arrested were male.
Teenage demonstrators gathered outside One Police Plaza Wednesday, CBS reports, chanting "Dignity For All Students” and “More Books, No Cops.”

One student at the protest said, "You have wonder what is the number going to be for the whole school year and we need to ask ourselves 'Is this school safety? Is this the NYPD showing us that they're keeping us safe by arresting us and giving us court summons for the most minor things?"
