Cop Involved With Breonna Taylor’s Murder Has Record Expunged Clean

brett hankison 1050x525

On September 23, 2020, knowing that there would be backlash for their decision, streets in downtown Louisville were blocked off officials, police put on high alert, and government buildings were boarded up as officials announced the charges against former officer Brett Hankison for his role in the raid which left Breonna Taylor dead. The subsequent outrage was well deserved as Hankison was not charged for anything that led to the death of Taylor. Instead, this trigger happy cowboy cop was charged with “first degree wanton endangerment” for shooting like a madman which led to...

The Justice Department Pressured USA Today to Stop Publishing Me

In 2015, Justice Department press chief Brian Fallon bitterly complained to USA Today editors about my articles walloping Attorney General Eric Holder, including"Eric Holder's Lawless Legacy," [Feb. 3, 2015] and "Eric Holder's Police Shooting Record? Dismal," [Aug. 20, 2014]. Fallon (who later became presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's press secretary) protested to USA Today commentary editor David Mastio and another USA Today editor, Brian Gallagher, about my "consistently nasty words about Mr. Holder" and said that Bovard "has never had a kind thing to say about Holder." (Actually,...

21 people, including 19 children aged nine to eleven, were murdered by a mentally unstable 18-year-old at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas on May 24. The brutality of the incident, and conflicting and contradictory reports on the fumbled the police response, sparked outrage in the Lone Star State and across the country. Uvalde officials’ use of a legal loophole to avoid releasing police records, including footage from officers’ body cams, 911 calls from students, emails, criminal records and other information has sparked concerns from Texans and others that authorities are...

Two days after Israeli forces shot and killed Al-Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Akleh, they beat mourners carrying the slain journalist's coffin.  The Israeli police, in full riot gear, confronted the funeral procession carrying Abu Akleh’s body outside the St Louis French Hospital in occupied East Jerusalem’s Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.

Another Failed Prediction From the Global Warming Alarmists

In 2009, the BBC ran a reporting piece on the Arctic featuring the esteemed polar scientist Peter Wadhams of Cambridge University. The Catlin Arctic Survey, a project set out to answer vital scientific questions about sea ice in the Arctic, had just returned with its findings. Its central purpose had been to gather evidence on how long a warming planet could sustain an all-year ice cover at its northern pole: How long did the Arctic ice cover have left? The results, said Wadhams, who has studied the Arctic since the 1970s, were terrifying. The survey supported the “new consensus view that...

Salafis Throwing Bombs: How American and British Planners Partnered With Al-Qaeda Affiliated Groups At the Start of the Syrian Civil War

2011 syria protests.svg

Introduction In the mainstream view, al-Qaeda did not play a role in the Syria conflict until Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi dispatched his deputy, Abu Muhammad al-Jolani, to Syria in August 2011 to establish a wing of the group there, called Jabhat al-Nusra, or the Nusra Front. Additionally, al-Qaeda allegedly did not carry out any military operations until December 2011 and did not announce its establishment until January 2012. However, there is evidence that al-Qaeda affiliated militants were involved in the Syrian conflict much earlier. Saudi intelligence...

Is Virtue Signaling Vicious?

yardsign kindnessiseverything y9fu w7

Virtue signaling—the practice of highlighting what one takes to be one’s own moral superiority, often by loudly denouncing the character and comportment, including the speech, of other people—has become a dominant mode of rhetoric throughout social media and network television. Virtue theory, in contrast, is a teleological approach to normative morality concerned with how actions affect one’s soul or character. Historians of philosophy usually trace virtue theory to Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, the first extant articulation of ideas such as that habits build character, and virtues...

Trial Begins For Female Cop Who Shot Minneosta Man, While Claiming To Reach for Taser

Just miles from where George Floyd took his last breaths on Earth as they were squeezed from his body by officer Derek Chauvin, Daunte Wright was targeted by police over an alleged expired tag. Because the American police state is a violent behemoth which knows no self-restraint, a few moments into the stop and Wright would be killed at the hands of those who claim to protect him. Immediately after killing Wright, the department claimed it was an accident but once video surfaced, all that changed. The Hennepin County medical examiner concluded in April that Wright “died of a gunshot wound...
