After a meeting in the White House with police union representatives, President Obama is reversing his ban on the sale of military equipmenmt to local law enforcement.
After four failed attempts to secure a conviction where there was no case, Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby’s office announced Wednesday morning that all charges have been dropped against the three remaining officers accused in the death of Freddie Gray. The announcement came the very morning her office was scheduled to begin the persecution by prosecution of Baltimore City Police Officer Garrett Miller.
On Tuesday, the last remaining charge against David Daleiden, of the Center for Medical Progress, and investigator Sandra Merritt, in Texas, was dropped. The pro-life advocates underwent what many would call a political witch hunt and were charged for making undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s fetal organ harvesting scheme.
23,035 Cables Prove That Clinton Knew E-mails Were Marked Classified When She Sent and Received ThemWritten by C. Mitchell Shaw
After spending more than a year denying — and avoiding indictment for — sending and receiving classified information over her unsecured, private e-mail server, Hillary Clinton still can’t shake the truth.

The war on police — denied by Black Lives Matter (BLM) and other anti-police groups and individuals — continues to claim lives. Sometimes — as in Dallas and Baton Rouge — those deaths come in groups.

Following weeks of violent rhetoric from the Black Lives Matter crowd and other social justice warriors, the war on police has claimed more lives. Sunday morning saw three Baton Rouge police officer killed and three others injured in a shooting where police officers were — as in Dallas — the targets of a black shooter angry over the deaths of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota.
Anti-gun police union leader demands the end of open carry in Ohio, and is appropriately rebuffed by governor John Kasich.
The Black Lives Matter crowd has used the police shootings of two black men to accuse all white people, all police officers, and especially all white police officers of systematic racism and targeting black men for murder.
