Key Witness #40 in Ferguson grand jury exposed as a racist, mentally ill felon  

Vox, NY Daily News By : Staff Reporting

Vox:

After a grand jury decided not to indict former Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown, St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch suggested in a press conference that the grand jury's decision was a result of unreliable eyewitness testimony.

The examples McCulloch used in his November 24 announcement focused on those who testified in favor of Brown, with McCulloch saying that the physical evidence rejected some of their descriptions of how the shooting played out. - Referenced Article

Sony execs Obama emails: White liberal hypocrisy revealed in all its glory  

Fox News By : Juan Williams

White liberal hypocrisy on race is so delightful for conservatives.

White conservatives are always on defense against charges of hating President Obama because he is black; suppressing minority voters and indifference to the difficulty minorities have living everyday with the legacy of slavery and a culture filled with stereotypes of black inferiority. - Referenced Article


Rush Limbaugh accurately highlights double-standard in coverage of racist comments from Sony  

eNewsReference.com By : Staff Reporting

I listen to Rush Limbaugh from time to time. I could care less about the ultra-conservative views he espouses, but I believe the conversation he has is very necessary.

I find myself laughing at most of the stuff he says and find it necessary to understand the arguments of the conspiracists. Every week there's a new conspiracy, so there's not much that I agree with spewing out of the man’s mouth until his comments recently.

There would be a public outrage of epic proportions if we learned top executives from say the energy sector was making racists and disparaging remarks about the President of the United States and leading entertainers of color. The media's reactions to the racist comments coming out of Sony is a collective oops we gotcha moment and has not ballooned into a debate about the evils of racism in our society like it would've been if it was a Republican politician.

I'm sensing a double standard here. Limbaugh makes a mockery of our double standard:

These are sensitive people. These are good liberals. They're the ones that eagle-eye racism and bigotry everywhere else, but they are innocent and clean and pure as the wind-driven snow, and here they are making fun of and mocking Obama's imaginable taste in movies and lamenting to each other they'd rather not have to go to this Katzenberg breakfast fundraiser and so forth.

The story here is not so much about the hacked emails accounts as it is the double standard in my view.

DOJ: Indian tribes can grow, sell marijuana on their land  

The Oregonian By : Staff Reporting

Finding the drug connection of Bill Cosby  

eNewsReference.com By : Staff Reporting

Slate Magazine published 24 cases of women claiming comedian Bill Cosby either rapped or assaulted them. The latest case to forward is that of actress and model Beverly Johnson, who claims Cosby drugged and attempted to rap her in his brownstone home.

A damning piece of evidence for all of the the claims would be Bill Cosby's source or supplier of drugs; more than likely a close personal friend and Medical doctor or Psychiatrist who's licensed to perscribe the drugs Cosby alledgedly used. There's an accomplish who has more than likely read about past accusers dating back to the early 70's.

I'm sure Cosby has many friends in professions that are licensed to perscribe drugs, some notable and some not in the public spotlight. Finding and auditing Cosby's accomplishes' inventory over the decades will lead to shedding more light on probably the most horrific claims against a public figure in U.S. History. There are potentially assistants working in practices who could potentially verify suspicious associations with Bill Cosby.

There's also potentially a black market source who's supplied drugs to Cosby and usually they talk to others about their association with a major U.S. celebrity. It's a matter of time before someone attached to Cosby's drug connection will come forward.

What will happen if that bombshell piece of evidence does not come to light? Will Cosby retire gracefully out of the public's consciousness?
