NEW YORK — Confronted by police trying to arrest him for allegedly selling illegal cigarettes, Eric Garner raised both hands in the air and, with passive defiance, told the officers not to touch him. Seconds later, a video shows the officer behind him grab the 350-pound man in a chokehold and pull him to the sidewalk, rolling him onto his stomach. “I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” Garner said repeatedly, his cries muffled into the pavement. The video of the Thursday skir ...

GOP Will Find a Way to Blame President Obama on Ukraine Jet Downing

Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

The monstrous downing of a Malaysian jet liner apparently by Russian backed separatists in the Ukraine did something that few thought could happen. It has gotten GOP leaders momentarily to agree with President Obama when he pointed the finger squarely at Russia for the horrific attack. But don't expect the GOP's hand hold with Obama to last.

Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Attorney General Eric Holder finally said the obvious and that's that racism drives and has always driven the relentless bashing of President Obama. In the past, Holder has strongly hinted that "racial animus," as he put it in his frank charge, has been the mainstay behind the GOP's non-stop, take no prisoners, assault on any and every initiative, program, and proposed piece of legislation that Obama has put forth. Holder's hint of this came in April at a convention o ...
