The Spectator: Have you met the Stepford students? - Free speech is so last century. Today’s students want the ‘right to be comfortable’ (Young people rebelled in the Twenties, took a Depression-War break in the Thirties-Forties, rebelled in the 50s and rebelled big-time in the Sixties. Just our luck that today, when Western civilization is going down for the count, college students compete with each other when it comes to conforming zombie-like to the Multicultural Marxist Establishment. Regardless of your feelings on abortion, the same scenario would play out if anyone tried to hold a debate on immigration, race and IQ, etc, etc.)

Daily Mail: As sitcom king Bill Cosby faces mounting accusations of rape: Was it fears of seeming racist that protected 'America's Dad' for so long? (Setting aside the question of what kind of predator would drug and rape women when he was so rich and famous that he could have had a Mississippi River of compliant young women flowing to his door, this must be horrific and disorienting for liberals, since Bill Cosby and the Huxtable family were a significant part of our nation’s sacred ‘Martin Luther King Narrative,’ also fictional.)

National Review (video): Ferguson Protesters Erupt Outside Police Department: ‘What Do We Want? Darren Wilson! How Do We Want Him? Dead!’ (Like feeding time in a very tolerant zoo?)
Ferguson Protesters Erupt Outside Police Department: ‘What Do We Want? Darren Wilson! How Do We Want Him? Dead!’
Protesters in Ferguson, Mo., have taken to the streets and chosen not to wait for a grand jury’s decision before clashing with police once again. A grand jury is expected to decide whether to indict police officer Darren Wilson, who is accused of shooting 18-year-old Michael Brown, in the coming days. But protesters made their voices heard outside the Ferguson Police Department on Thursday night shouting, “What do we want? Darren Wilson! How do we want him? Dead!”
Protesters gathered on South Florissant Road outside the police department and halted traffic. Police responded by coming out of the station and forming a line behind the barricade protecting the department. The protesters grew visibly angry and began challenging the police officers. In this video, a protester verbally assaults a police officer who is filming the demonstration outside the department. Warning: Video contains foul language. ...
The American Conservative - Kelley Vlahos: The Military-Industrial Candidate - Hillary Clinton prepares to launch the most formidable hawkish presidential campaign in a generation. - “You don’t get to be a serious person in Washington until you are considered pro-intervention,” said Mike Lofgren, who spent 30 years as a budget analyst and aide on Capitol Hill, specializing in defense. Plus, the “Clintons, they really like to hang out with rich people and there is a lot of money in the military industrial complex.” (Just our luck. When our ambassadors are being sodomized and murdered, General Bombs-Away Clinton is nowhere to be found.)
The Military-Industrial Candidate
Asserting a legal and constitutional authority he himself said he did not have, President Obama is going rogue, issuing an executive amnesty to 4 to 5 million illegal aliens.
He will order the U.S. government not to enforce the law against these 5 million, and declare that they are to be exempt from deportation and granted green cards.
Where did Obama get his 4-5 million figure, not 2-4 million, or 5-7 million? Nowhere in law, but plucked out of his own mind, as to what he can get away with. Barack Obama just felt it was about right.
Thus does our constitutional law professor-president “faithfully execute” the laws of the United States he has twice swore to uphold?
Our rogue president has crossed an historic line, and so has the republic. Future presidents will cite the “Obama precedent” when they declare they will henceforth not enforce this or that law, because of a prior commitment to some noisy constituency.
We have just taken a monumental step away from republicanism toward Caesarism. For this is rule by diktat, the rejection of which sparked the American Revolution.
The political, psychological and moral effects of Obama’s action will be dramatic. Sheriffs, border patrol, and immigration authorities, who have put their lives on the line to secure our broken borders, have been made to look like fools. Resentment and cynicism over Obama’s action will be deeply corrosive to all law enforcement.
Businessmen who obeyed the law and refused to hire illegals, hiring Americans and legal immigrants instead, and following U.S. and state law on taxes, wages and withholding, also look like fools today.
Obama’s action makes winners of the scofflaws and hustlers.
Bosses who hired illegals off the books will also receive de facto amnesty. La Raza is celebrating. But, make no mistake, a corrupt corporate crowd is also publicly relieved and privately elated.
Immigrants who waited in line for years to come to America, and those waiting still, have egg on their faces. Why, they are saying to themselves, were we so stupid as to obey U.S. laws, when it is the border-jumpers who are now on the way to residency and citizenship?
When the world hears of the Obama amnesty, millions more from Latin America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East will be coming. And if they cannot get in legally, they will walk in, or fly in, and overstay their visas.
Why not? It works.
That this action will be as much a part of Obama’s legacy as Obamacare is certain. The unanswered question is how the Obama amnesty will be remembered by history.
His aides think that it will be seen as a second Emancipation Proclamation. Perhaps.
But with this amnesty Obama takes custody of and responsibility for the entire illegal population. He is the patron saint of illegal aliens. And for what they do, he will be held accountable ...
AP / Yahoo News: Bandits in Guinea steal suspected Ebola blood (Repeat after me: Africa is a continual series of medical, criminal, social, economic, political corruption, violent, violent train wrecks, plus ever more popular witchcraft killings and baby raping to 'cure AIDS,' due to poverty and injustice--not genetics!)
Bandits in Guinea steal suspected Ebola blood
CONAKRY, Guinea (AP) — Roadside bandits in Guinea stole a cooler containing blood samples that are believed to have Ebola, officials said Friday, warning of the risks and vowing tighter security measures for transport of such potentially contagious cargo.
The vehicle was transporting test tubes containing blood when the roadside robbery took place on the route from Kankan prefecture in central Guinea to a test site in Gueckedou, in the south, national health officials said.
The bandits held up the minibus taxi carrying the samples from a suspected Ebola patient on Wednesday, said Guinea Red Cross press officer Faya Etienne Tolno. Why they took the blood samples is unknown. ...

Milwaukee Man, 20, Charged with Raping 101-Year-Old Woman in Her Home - "The defendant said he did not plan the sexual assault or he would have worn a condom," the complaint states.
Man, 20, Charged with Raping 101-Year-Old Woman in Her Home
A Milwaukee man has been charged with sexually assaulting a 101-year-old woman in her home in September.
Antoine Devon Pettis, 20, faces charges of burglary, aggravated battery and second degree sexual assault, which carries a penalty of up to 25 years in prison.
According to the criminal complaint and Milwaukee police:
The victim was asleep at her home on the city's north side, where she lived alone, when she heard a noise and realized someone was in her bedroom. She asked who was there and why, but was only told "shut up" and slapped several times in the face.
The attacker then grabbed the victim's wrists, flipped her on her stomach, sexually assaulted her and left. The woman waited on her bed until she thought the intruder was gone, then went to her door and began yelling for help.
Police arrived to find the woman bleeding from her face and with blood stains on her legs and buttocks. ...
