Joe Scarboroughis mad as hell and not etc.

“Someone needs to tell me why Michael Brown has been chosen as the face of black oppression,” Scarborough said, arguing the left’s martyrdom of Brown mirrored the right’s lionization of George Zimmerman.

“There are so many great people to embrace as heroes in the black community, that deciding you’re going to embrace a guy who knocked over a convenience store and then according to a Grand Jury testimony acted in ways that would get my children shot? …That’s your hero? That’s the reason you want to burn down black businesses?…Really? This is your mission in life?”

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, who happens to be black, is a true patriot who is tired of President Barack Obama’s racial politics. Watch (above) as he explains – without “sugar-coating things” – why Attorney General Eric Holder should be held in contempt and why professional race agitator Al Sharpton should be prosecuted.

Sheriff Clarke is furious at all of the unnecessary exploitation of racial tensions in Ferguson, Missouri:

I sat up and watched, as events unfolded in Ferguson, Missouri–unfortunate situation, obviously. Anytime a law enforcement officer uses force that takes a life, it deserves a thorough, transparent vetting–investigation. We all agree with that. But then some groups began to converge on the small town of Ferguson, Missouri, like vultures on a roadside carcass… people like Al Sharpton.”

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) stepped back on Tuesday from an immediate confrontation with President Barack Obama over immigration, taxes and funding the government, deferring a showdown until a new Republican Congress is sworn in next year.

Though no plans have been formally announced, early reports suggest that House Republicans will pass the yearly massive appropriations bill to fund the government through next year, since current funding runs through Dec. 11. But they want to break out funding for the Department of Homeland Security and pass that as a continuing resolution, keeping the funding for the agency at current levels until March. Their strategy to get through the lame-duck session also includes the possibility of a disapproval vote on the president's executive action on immigration.

The Alexandria legal advocacy group that sued Harvard University and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill this week for capping the number of Asian-Americans they admit says it hopes to file more lawsuits against other college for race-based admissions policies in the coming days.

Officials at the Project on Fair Representation say they are looking for students at other schools to come forward to provide evidence for future suits, with the ultimate goal of proving that all race-based admissions policies should be banned because they are inevitably abused by the schools that use them.

Democratic members of Congress showed solidarity with Ferguson protesters tonight by making the “Hands up, don’t shoot” gesture on the House floor tonight.

New York’s Hakeem Jeffries and Yvette Clarke, along with Texas’ Al Green, all made the protest gesture on the House floor tonight. Green made the gesture in reference to what the St. Louis Rams did, but touted it as a “new symbol” of protest.

Oliver Friedfeld, a senior at Georgetown University (GU) and his roommate were recently mugged at gun point -- but Frieldfeld says he deserved it because of his "privilege." 

In an oped for the GU newspaper, The Hoya, Friedfeld wrote that he "can hardly blame" the assailants for robbing him. He argued that income inequality is to blame for the incident. 

"Who am I to stand from my perch of privilege, surrounded by million-dollar homes and paying for a $60,000 education, to condemn these young men as ‘thugs?’ It’s precisely this kind of ‘otherization’ that fuels the problem," Friedfeld wrote.

Columnist Charles Krauthammer laid out a plan for the GOP to defund President Obama's executive action on immigration without a government shutdown on Monday's "Special Report" on the Fox News Channel. 

"I think what they ought to do is to pass a continuing resolution that lasts through next year, through September, but for ICE, the immigration service only, and for the EPA, I would only have a three-month extension, at which point you would be fully funding the government but you would leave it in a position where in mid-March, when Republicans have the high ground, control of the House and the Senate, they would be in a position to use the pressure to get what they want either on regulation, on EPA stuff, environmental stuff, killing coal, or on immigration issues. But you don't do it now when the other guy has the higher terrain and when you know how the president will report it. The Republicans are ahead, they shouldn't blow it" he stated.

L.A. school district officials turned over 20 boxes of documents Monday in response to a federal grand jury subpoena for documents related to its troubled iPad project, officials confirmed Tuesday afternoon.

The subpoena asked for documents related to the bidding process as well as to the winning bidders in the $1.3-billion effort to provide a computer to every student, teacher and campus administrator.

The contract, approved in June 2013, was with Apple to supply iPads; Pearson provided the curriculum as a subcontractor.

CNN analyst Mel Robbins read a crucial piece of evidence from the transcript that destroys the lies surrounded the shooting of Michael Brown. In short, there is a trail of blood that proves Michael Brown turned away from officer Wilson and then turned back around and moved toward him at least 20 feet, which corroborates Officer Wilson’s testimony.

20 feet is a long way when an officer is telling you to stop and surrender.
