Court Lets Police Stop People Who Run Away
WASHINGTON — People who suddenly run from police can be stopped and questioned, the Supreme Court ruled Wednesday, even if officers have no other reason to suspect them of wrongdoing.
An “unprovoked flight” when an officer or a police car approaches is suspicious behavior, the court said. And officers are free to make “common-sense judgments” when deciding whether to stop a fleeing suspect.
Who knew? But SHE’S the ‘authority’, so so ought to have.

Source: Baltimore mayor ordered police to stand down
Despite a firm denial by Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, a senior law enforcement source charges that she gave an order for police to stand down as riots broke out Monday night, raising more questions about whether some of the violence and looting could have been prevented.
The source, who is involved in the enforcement efforts, confirmed to Fox News there was a direct order from the mayor to her police chief Monday night, effectively tying the hands of officers as they were pelted with rocks and bottles.
Asked directly if the mayor was the one who gave that order, the source said:
“You are God damn right it was.“

Earth Day Co-Founder Killed, Composted Girlfriend

Obama Kept Iran’s Short Breakout Time a Secret
The Barack Obama administration has estimated for years that Iran was at most three months away from enriching enough nuclear fuel for an atomic bomb. But the administration only declassified this estimate at the beginning of the month, just in time for the White House to make the case for its Iran deal to Congress and the public.
Speaking to reporters and editors at our Washington bureau on Monday, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz acknowledged that the U.S. has assessed for several years that Iran has been two to three months away from producing enough fissile material for a nuclear weapon. When asked how long the administration has held this assessment, Moniz said: “Oh quite some time.” He added: “They are now, they are right now spinning, I mean enriching with 9,400 centrifuges out of their roughly 19,000. Plus all the . . . . R&D work. If you put that together it’s very, very little time to go forward. That’s the 2-3 months.”
Brian Hale, a spokesman for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, confirmed to me Monday that the two-to-three-month estimate for fissile material was declassified on April 1.
Here is the puzzling thing: When Obama began his second term in 2013, he sang a different tune…
Would I tell you something that wasn’t true…?*

State Department Won’t Rule Out $50 Billion ‘Signing Bonus’ For Iran
Largest cash infusion to terror regime in recent memory, experts say
The State Department on Monday would not rule out giving Iran up to $50 billion as a so-called “signing bonus” for agreeing to a nuclear deal later this year, according to comments made to journalists following reports that the Obama administration had formulated a plan to release tens of billions of frozen Iranian funds.
Experts have said this multi-billion dollar “signing bonus” option, which was first reported by the Wall Street Journal, could be the largest cash infusion to a terror-backing regime in recent memory.
A cash release of $30 to $50 billion upon reaching a final nuclear agreement would come in addition to the more than $11 billion in unfrozen assets that Iran will already have received under an interim nuclear accord reached in 2013.
…rings no bells with this pretentious princess.
ESPN has “suspended” the delicate college graduate for a week. A FRICKING WEEK.
She’s apologized for letting her frustration get the better of her, but NEITHER for her unkind words, NOR directly to the tow company cashier.
She needs to HAVE no job. Like another entitled asshat who used his superior station in life to berate an undeserving, lower tier employee.

US WIMP-OUT ON IRAN DEAL?
France claims Kerry team caved to
keep Iranians at the table, get a deal
US reportedly backed down on initial goals in Iran talks
U.S. negotiators reportedly lowered the bar for their own goals during talks over Iran’s nuclear program in response to resistance from the Tehran team. And, on the heels of a framework deal being announced in Switzerland, France’s top diplomat on Friday admitted his country had initially held out for firmer terms.
The emerging reports indicate the U.S. team, led by Secretary of State John Kerry, gradually backed down over the course of the talks as Iran’s delegation dug in. The Wall Street Journal, citing current and former U.S. representatives at the discussions, claimed the White House had initially hoped to persuade Iran to dismantle much of the country’s nuclear infrastructure when talks started in late 2013, only to be told categorically that Iran would not do so.
But listen to the echoes of #WhatDifferenceDoesItMake
“…killed an unarmed black teenager there in August.”
With media friends like responsible news agency Reuters explaining the complete circumstances of every officer involved death, it’s just amazing there aren’t more attempted summary executions of random police officers. The only thing they’re missing is Al Sharpton’s byline.
A big badda-boom, 6 dead and over a 1000 people injured. Oh, if ONLY these guys had had jobs, right?
The 1993 World Trade Center bombers: Where are they now?
On Feb. 26, 1993, an ugly new phase of terrorism was ushered in when Jordanian Eyad Ismoil drove Kuwaiti Ramzi Yousef and a 1,300-pound nitrate-hydrogen gas enhanced bomb also stuffed with cyanide into the parking garage below the World Trade Center in Manhattan.
Yousef lit a 20-foot fuse, and the two fled quickly enough to evade immediate capture by authorities. The bomb killed six people and injured more than 1,000 that day.
When the bomb went off, their goal of bringing down the Twin Towers failed, but the event was the first in a continuing string of indiscriminate attacks on civilians by terrorists designed solely to kill as many as possible.
I’m kinda sick of these Muslim-terrorism tinged anniversaries anymore, you know? Why can’t WE have at least ONE where we kicked some serious ass and MEANT it?
…The Islamic State, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), follows a distinctive variety of Islam whose beliefs about the path to the Day of Judgment matter to its strategy, and can help the West know its enemy and predict its behavior. Its rise to power is less like the triumph of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt (a group whose leaders the Islamic State considers apostates) than like the realization of a dystopian alternate reality in which David Koresh or Jim Jones survived to wield absolute power over not just a few hundred people, but some 8 million.
Read “What ISIS Really Wants” and be truly educated.
I would while away the hours,
Trying to cause them pain.
But no matter how I sliced them,
Hacked and chopped and diced them,
It just never seems the same.
Oh, I could tell you why,
I LOVE my ISIS gore.
Lopping heads and burning folks is so much more,
My rocks get OFF!
Which I adore!
I can brutalize a woman,
Acting all sub-human,
And claim it’s all okay.
I can shout “Allah Ackbar”,
While fileting with my KBar,
And I know you’re all afraid!
Oh, I can make men cry,
As I quote Mo’s cheerful verse.
Medieval remedies abound to set the curse.
I can slice!
Or even worse!
Now Obama wants to help us,
A Job Corps just for ISIS,
Occupy our idle time.
Well, you can tell sweet Maria,
If I ever were to meet her,

Islam and the West at War
After a Danish movie director at a seminar on “Art, Blasphemy and Freedom of Expression” and a Danish Jew guarding a synagogue were shot dead in Copenhagen, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, the prime minister of Denmark, uttered a familiar trope:
“We are not in the middle of a battle between Islam and the West. It’s not a battle between Muslims and non-Muslims. It’s a battle between values based on the freedom of the individual and a dark ideology.”
This statement — with its echoes of President Obama’s vague references to “violent extremists” uncoupled from the fundamentalist Islam to which said throat-cutting extremists pledge allegiance — scarcely stands up to scrutiny.
It is empty talk.
…thanks to ISIS butchers and their knives.
But before you get all ‘upset’ and shit, Christians, you’d do well to remember our President’s words of wisdom:
GET OFF YOUR HIGH HORSE

And, yes ~ something with MASSIVE KUDOS for Michelle Obama REALLY did just come out of my computer.
She met the Saudis with her gum-chewing, bow-prone husband yesterday…IN PANTS AND UNCOVERED. About frickin’ damn time SOME AMERICAN woman stood as unswathed instead of looking (as Ebola put it) like “a Sherpa heading upmountain”.
For the first time in my life, I’m actually PROUD of our First Lady.
Michelle Obama navigates limits on women in Saudi Arabia
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — For first lady Michelle Obama, just a few hours in Saudi Arabia were enough to illustrate the stark limitations under which Saudi women live.
Joining President Barack Obama for a condolence visit after the death of the King Abdullah, Mrs. Obama stepped off of Air Force One wearing long pants and a long, brightly colored jacket — but no headscarf.

Coming soon to a shore near you?
I’ve been reading that the US is getting ready to accept 7000 Syrian refugees, as the START of that refugee resettlement program.
I’m sure they’ll be as carefully and thoroughly vetted as everything else this administration touches.
