Johnson told his story on MSNBC with his lawyer and former St. Louis Mayor Freeman Bosley, Jr..

Today Dorian Johnson’s lawyer and former St. Louis Mayor had his law license revoked today indefinitely.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported:

The Missouri Supreme Court has suspended former St. Louis Mayor Freeman R. Bosley Jr.’s law license indefinitely.

Initially, a three-member panel appointed by the Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel called for a minimum two-year suspension because Bosley admitted in court Dec. 9 that he mishandled clients’ funds. It also noted Bosley combined personal and client funds, used trust account money to pay personal expenses and failed to keep accurate records.

Bosley went into private practice after losing a 1997 mayoral re-election bid.

The Post-Dispatch did not mention that Bosley was Johnson’s lawyer even though he has been holding several national interviews this past month.

Chaffetz Condemns Secret Service Praise of Officers who Let Armed Intruder Enter White House

Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, September 30, 2014, 11:21 AM

Guest post by Kristinn Taylor

At a House hearing Tuesday morning, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) condemned the Secret Service for issuing a statement praising officers who allowed an armed intruder to enter the White House on September 19 for showing “tremendous restraint”.
(Transcript by the Blaze)

“Tremendous restraint is not what we’re looking for. Tremendous restraint is not the goal and the objective. It sends a very mixed message. The message should be overwhelming force.

“If one person can hop that fence and run unimpeded all the way into an open door at the White House, don’t praise them for tremendous restraint. That’s not the goal. That’s not what we’re looking for.”

… “Don’t let somebody get close to the president. Don’t let somebody get close to his family. Don’t let them get in the White House, ever. And if they have to take action that’s lethal, I will have their back.”

At the time the press release was issued the day after the incident, The Gateway Pundit was one the few to call out the Secret Service for the absurdity of praising officers who allowed a major security breach just weeks after supporters of the Islamist terrorist group ISIS announced they were targeting the White House.

The Washington Post reported Monday that the intruder, Iraq vet Omar Gonzalez, 42 of Copperas Cove, Texas, ran amok in the White House, successfully evading an agent posted inside the front entrance and running to the back of the East Room on the first floor before finally being stopped at the door to the East Room. President Obama and his family were not at the White House having left just minutes before for Camp David.


Death Row Cop Killer to Deliver Goddard College Commencement Speech Sunday

On December 9, 1981, at approximately 3:55 a.m., Officer Danny Faulkner, a five year veteran of the Philadelphia Police Department, made a traffic stop at Locust Street near Twelfth Street. The car stopped by Officer Faulkner was being driven by William Cook. After making the stop, Danny called for assistance on his police radio and requested a police wagon to transport a prisoner. Unbeknownst to him, William Cook’s brother, Wesley (aka Mumia Abu-Jamal) was across the street. As Danny attempted to handcuff William Cook, Mumia Abu-Jamal ran from across the street and shot the officer in the back. Danny turned and was able to fire one shot that struck Abu-Jamal in the chest; the wounded officer then fell to the pavement.

Mumia Abu-Jamal stood over the downed officer and shot him four more times at close range, once directly in the face. Mumia Abu-Jamal was found still at the scene of the shooting by officers who arrived there within seconds. The murderer was slumped against the curb in front of his brother’s car. In his possession was a .38 caliber revolver that records showed Mumia had purchased months earlier. The chamber of the gun had five spent cartridges. A cab driver, as well as other pedestrians, had witnessed the brutal slaying and identified Mumia Abu-Jamal as the killer both at the scene and during his trial.

On July 2, 1982, after being tried before a jury of ten whites and two blacks, Mumia Abu-Jamal was convicted of murdering Officer Danny Faulkner. The next day, the jury sentenced him to death after deliberating for two hours. The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania heard the defendant’s appeals and upheld the conviction on March 6, 1989.

On Sunday October 5th, Mumia Abu Jamal will deliver the commencement speech at Goddard College in Vermont. His speech was prerecorded by Prison Radio. reported:

Goddard College announced today that Mumia Abu-Jamal, an American prisoner, author, and journalist who received his Bachelor of Arts from Goddard in 1996, was selected by the students of the Undergraduate Program’s Fall 2014 graduating class to be their commencement speaker this Sunday, October 5.

Abu-Jamal was convicted in the 1981 murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner. His original death sentence handed down at his trial in 1982 was commuted to life imprisonment without parole in 2011. He was then transferred from death row to the Mahanoy State Correctional Institution in Frackville, Pa., where he resides today.

Abu-Jamal’s commencement remarks were prerecorded by Director of Prison Radio Noelle Hanrahan and will be played alongside a short video created by director and filmmaker Stephen Vittoria, whose documentary “Long Distance Revolutionary: A Journey with Mumia Abu-Jamal” was released in 2012.

Goddard College holds twenty commencement ceremonies each year, allowing for students in each degree program to personalize their graduation experience.

“As a reflection of Goddard’s individualized and transformational educational model, our commencements are intimate affairs where each student serves as her or his own valedictorian, and each class chooses its own speaker,” said Goddard College Interim President Bob Kenny. “Choosing Mumia as their commencement speaker, to me, shows how this newest group of Goddard graduates expresses their freedom to engage and think radically and critically in a world that often sets up barriers to do just that,” he said.

This is insane.

How China News Reported Hong Kong Protests: “Thousands Celebrate National Day of China”

Guest post by Joe Hoft in Hong Kong

Hong Kong riot police fired teargas, pepper spray for the first time since 2005 this weekend to disperse pro-democracy demonstrators. Thousands of protesters blocked the main street to the financial district on September 28.

The Hong Kong democracy protesters gave the Chinese government a Wednesday deadline to meet their demands for political reforms. Hong Kong’s chief executive Leung Chun-ying said that Beijing would not reverse its decision to hand-pick eligible candidates to lead the former British colony.

This is how the China media reported on the massive protests in Hong Kong:
“Thousands of people come out to celebrate the National Day of China”

October 1st is National Day in China and a holiday. The protests are expected to grow larger.

One Hong Kong policeman posted this on Facebook:
“Really disappointed that no protesters die”

Latest Liberal Lunacy: Global Warming Created ISIS

Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, September 30, 2014, 9:04 AM

60,000 Syrian Kurds fled their villages as ISIS advanced in northern Syria in September.
syria isis refugees
Syrian Kurds withdraw from ~60 towns as ISIS advanced. (Great Whatever)

But, leftists believe the real threat in Syria is not ISIS. It’s global warming. In fact, the left believes climate change created ISIS and imperils Afghan girls who want to attend school.

Yes, really.

Charles B. Strozier, a Professor of History, The City University of New York, and Kelly Berkell, Attorney and research associate, Center on Terrorism at John Jay College of Criminal Justice pushed this crackpot theory at The Huffington Post, via Yid With Lid:

As the Obama administration undertakes a highly public, multilateral campaign to degrade and destroy the militant jihadists known as ISIS, ISIL and the Islamic State, many in the West remain unaware that climate played a significant role in the rise of Syria’s extremists. A historic drought afflicted the country from 2006 through 2010, setting off a dire humanitarian crisis for millions of Syrians. Yet the four-year drought evoked little response from Bashar al-Assad’s government. Rage at the regime’s callousness boiled over in 2011, helping to fuel the popular uprising. In the ensuing chaos, ISIS stole onto the scene, proclaimed a caliphate in late June and accelerated its rampage of atrocities including the recent beheadings of three Western civilians.

While ISIS threatens brutal violence against all who dissent from its harsh ideology, climate change menaces communities (less maliciously) with increasingly extreme weather. Most of us perceive these threats as unrelated. We recycle water bottles and buy local produce to keep the earth livable for our children — not to ward off terrorists. Yet environmental stressors and political violence are connected in surprising ways, sparking questions about collective behavior. If more Americans knew how glacial melt contributes to catastrophic weather in Afghanistan — potentially strengthening the Taliban and imperiling Afghan girls who want to attend school — would we drive more hybrids and use millions fewer plastic bags? How would elections and legislation be influenced?

The drought that preceded the current conflict in Syria fits into a pattern of increased dryness in the Mediterranean and Middle East, for which scientists hold climate change partly responsible. Affecting 60 percent of Syria’s land, drought ravaged the country’s northeastern breadbasket region; devastated the livelihoods of 800,000 farmers and herders; and knocked two to three million people into extreme poverty. Many became climate refugees, abandoning their homes and migrating to already overcrowded cities. They forged temporary settlements on the outskirts of areas like Aleppo, Damascus, Hama and Homs. Some of the displaced settled in Daraa, where protests in early 2011 fanned out and eventually ignited a full-fledged war.

Drought did not singlehandedly spawn the Syrian uprising, but it stoked simmering anger at Assad’s dictatorship. This frustration further destabilized Syria and carved out a space in which ISIS would thrive.

This is not the first time we’ve heard this. The Center for Naval Analyses released a report in May warning that climate change was a greater threat than terrorism or cyber-attacks. The study also attributed the Syrian Civil War to climate change.

“All of a sudden just bout 20 kids are on top of my car with about 40 more kids around my car and they kicking, they stomping, they jumping, you know they hitting the windows,” Mourning said…

…Police reported a 51-year-old man was attacked in his car after honking his horn at the teenagers to move out of the way.

They had done bricked his car, stomped his car, did the same thing,” Mourning explained.

Mourning reported seeing the teenagers beat an elderly man and another teenager, “I actually looked at the child. His face was bleeding. You know they had done beat him.”

Media Ignores Obama’s 60 Minutes Ratings Collapse – Down 69% in a Week

Posted by Jim Hoft on Monday, September 29, 2014, 10:11 PM

Guest post by Kristinn Taylor

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS.

For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers.

“With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69% from last Sunday, when it directly followed the game.”

Also, Variety avoided mentioning Obama on 60 Minutes.

“At CBS, “60 Minutes” (1.1/4 in 18-49, 9.2 million viewers overall) dropped off sharply from last week when it had the end of the Denver-Seattle football game as a lead-in, and was also down about 20% from last year.”

The Los Angeles Times likewise did not name Obama.

“”60 Minutes” didn’t fare as well. With a rating of 1.1 in the key demo, the show was down 69% from last week’s season premiere. About 9.1 million people tuned in.”

Neither did Broadcasting and Cable:

“Newsmagazine 60 Minutes drew a 1.1, down sharply from last week, when it received a big lead-in from football overruns”

TV by the Numbers:

“On CBS, 60 Minutes scored a 1.1, down 69 percent from last week’ s NFL boosted 3.5 adults 18-49 rating.”

The Wrap:

“CBS took fourth place in ratings with a 1.3/4 and third in total viewers with 10.7 million. “60 Minutes” at 7 posted a 1.1/4 with 9.2 million total viewers, while the freshman drama “Madam Secretary” the following hour dropped off 30 percent from last week’s series premiere, posting a 1.4/4 with 12.7 million total viewers.”

Last week CBS sent out a press release bragging on 60 Minutes’ ratings, as reported by the Futon Critic.

There appears to be no reports of 60 Minutes bragging about the ratings for Obama’s 60 Minutes show.

A gold star goes to Hal Boedeker at the Orlando Sentinel for apparently being the only reporter to mentioned Obama in reporting on 60 Minutes’ ratings however he did not mention the huge ratings drop.

“And “60 Minutes” had 9.2 million for an interview with President Barack Obama.”

Change Obama to Bush and one can imagine how the media would have been reporting the 60 Minutes ratings collapse: Americans Tune out Bush as He Drags U.S. in Another War.
