16 Facts About Al Sharpton the Media Won't Tell You

Interesting list.  Some comments regarding a few of the items:



Item 8.  1994 was 20 years ago.  Attitudes about homosexuality were not what they are today.  Sharpton is probably smart enough not to make such an un-PC statement today.



Item 9.  Many people do not believe that Mormons are not true Christians.  Many were afraid to vote for Romney for that reason.  Sharpton's attitude was not unique.



Item 10.  If he was acquitted, it is possible that he really didn't do it.



Item 14.  If Sharpton helped bust some drug traffickers by serving as a Government informant, then good for him.





So, perhaps four of the 16 listed items should not be held against Mr. Sharpton.  That leaves 12 suggesting that he may not deserve the respect and adulation that he has been receiving.  And the remaining 12 certainly are not mentioned by the mainstream media.

Rand Paul tells the world what his first act as president would be | Rare

ALL previous executive orders?  That means that the EPA would go away!  President Nixon established the EPA with an executive order.





Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) traveled up to New Hampshire to visit Generation Opportunity’s chapter there and made some bold remarks after one person in the audience asked whether he’d repeal executive orders if he were elected president.

Without saying whether he would run or not, Paul replied, “I think the first executive order that I would issue would be to repeal all previous executive orders,” which really got the crowd pumped, Breitbart’s Matthew Boyle reported.

Bad Strategy

A CNBC reporter just stated a theory that she had heard about why Saudi Arabia is continuing to pump oil and drive down oil prices.

According to this source, the Saudi leadership thinks that the United States has been too soft on Iran. The Saudis are pushing oil prices down to put pressure on the U.S. to get tougher with Iran.

If that is, indeed, what the Saudis are thinking, they are likely to be disappointed with the results that they get.

U.S. sends 5 Guantánamo detainees to Kazakhstan | The Miami Herald

The Pentagon freed five Guantánamo prisoners to resettlement in Kazakhstan on Tuesday, a day after they left on a U.S. Air Force cargo plane that had to circle back to the base in Cuba with a mechanical problem.

The transfers of three Yemenis and two Tunisians demonstrated the far-flung nature of the State Department’s resettlement deals as it tries to chart new lives for cleared captives whose home nations are too unsettled for repatriation.

Khowst – 5 Years Later — Central Intelligence Agency

Five years ago, on a cold, gloomy December afternoon in the mountainous region of Khowst Province in southeastern Afghanistan, an al-Qa`ida terrorist detonated a bomb strapped to his chest and killed seven CIA officers and injured six others; one of the deadliest attacks ever conducted against Agency personnel.

The suicide bomber had been recruited as a CIA informant and taken to Afghanistan to infiltrate the upper ranks of al-Qa`ida. For months, he provided the Agency with independently verifiable intelligence on the terrorist network, and he promised to lead the CIA to the group’s most senior members. Instead, the asset was an al-Qa`ida double agent.

I am President Barack Obama’s college classmate from Columbia University, Class of ’83. Back in 1981 when my Columbia classmates heard my hero President Ronald Reagan had been shot, they erupted in joy. They celebrated by jumping up and down, cheering, hugging, and giving each other high-fives. They screamed, “YES! Reagan is dead. They got the bastard!” I witnessed it all, first-hand. My radical leftist classmates thought a conservative legend was dead and this was cause for celebration. I remember thinking, “they are celebrating like it’s New Year’s Eve.” Afterall that’s what you do on New Year’s- celebrate!

Federal Grand Jury Indicts Huntsville Police Officer on Bribery Charges

FBI Birmingham Division Press Release:


Federal Grand Jury Indicts Huntsville Police Officer on Bribery Charges

U.S. Attorney’s OfficeDecember 29, 2014
  • Northern District of Alabama(205) 244-2001
BIRMINGHAM—A federal grand jury today indicted a Huntsville police officer in connection with a conspiracy to fix cocaine trafficking charges against an individual arrested by another Huntsville officer, announced U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance, FBI Special Agent in Charge Richard D. Schwein Jr. and Huntsville Police Chief Lewis Morris.
A four-count indictment filed in U.S. District Court charges LEWIS BERNARD HALL, 45, of Meridianville, Ala., with conspiracy, bribery, obstruction of justice and making a false statement to investigators. According to the charges, Hall conspired with someone identified in the indictment as “Individual B” to pay a fellow police officer $5,000 if that officer would claim his July 29 vehicle search that resulted in drug-trafficking charges against “Individual A” was unlawful, thereby making the criminal case against Individual A go away. The Huntsville officer who conducted the vehicle search and, subsequently, assisted in the investigation of Hall is identified in the indictment as “Cooperating Officer.”
“Our community expects and deserves police officers who will protect citizens and uphold the law, not tarnish their badge and work to protect criminals,” Vance said. “The U.S. Attorney’s Office prosecutes public corruption cases to punish those who violate the law and the public trust and to reinforce the need and expectation of integrity in government and police service.”
“Public corruption is the FBI’s number one criminal priority for a reason,” Schwein said. “It tears at the fabric of our democracy and works to undermine the public’s trust and confidence in the government. The FBI will continue to aggressively investigate violations of that trust committed by any public official, regardless of position.”
“The Huntsville Police Department contacted the FBI as soon as we learned of possible corruption and we assisted the FBI in its investigation,” Morris said. “I want to assure the public that this indictment addresses the actions of one police officer, and the Huntsville department will diligently address any other issues that might come to our attention. We value the working relationship we enjoy with the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office and appreciate their attention to this case.”
According to the indictment’s conspiracy count, on July 31, Hall and Individual B discussed offering the Cooperating Officer a bribe to tell other law enforcement officers that his search of Individual A’s vehicle, which uncovered about three ounces of cocaine, was unlawful. Hall offered the bribe to the Cooperating Officer on July 31, paid him $1,000 on Aug. 12, and had two follow-up conversations in November about what the officer was supposed to say when asked about the search of Individual A’s vehicle, the indictment says.
The bribery count charges Hall with corruptly offering the bribe to an agent of the City of Huntsville and its police department, which received more than $10,000 in federal benefits within one year, to influence the Cooperating Officer in how he reported the July 29 vehicle search.
The obstruction of justice count charges Hall with offering the bribe with the intent to delay or prevent the reporting of a felony or possible felony offense and the violation of conditions of supervised release by Individual A.
The false statement count charges Hall with knowingly making a false statement to an FBI agent on Dec. 8, saying he did not give money to the Cooperating Officer in connection with that officer’s reporting of his search of Individual A’s vehicle.
The maximum penalty for both the conspiracy and the false statement charges is five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The maximum penalty for the bribery count is 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, and the maximum for the obstruction count is 20 years in prison and a $250,000.
The FBI investigated the case in conjunction with the Huntsville Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney George A. Martin Jr. is prosecuting the case.

FBI briefed on alternate Sony hack theory - Tal Kopan - POLITICO
