Yes, Mr. Holder, Words Matter
Frank Salvato
In February of 2008, then-Senator Barack Obama spoke to a campaign rally crowd in Wisconsin and declared that “words matter.” In shaping the image that was the centerpiece of the “idea of Obama,” he ginned-up an air of intellectualism using the tactic of manipulating through emotion, a potent tool in the Progressive war chest. “Don’t tell me words don’t matter,” he said. “I have a dream. Just words. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal...Just words...just speeches.” Indeed, Mr. Obama is absolutely correct, a rare point where I agree with him. The problem is this. If we hold him to his own words, then the statements of his closest ally, Attorney General Eric Holder, must be taken literally. This is where I find myself very concerned. The events in Ferguson, Missouri, are serious on many levels. We have the death of a young man and the brutal beating of a police officer at his hand. We have a community that exists on the head of a racial powder keg, begging for a spark to light the fuse. And we have perhaps the most politically motivated – and many would say, and rightfully so, divisive – US Attorney’s General in the history of our nation in Eric Holder, injecting himself into this delicate situation and making some statements where words certainly do matter.

When Wall Street Greed Kills
Frank Salvato
In the movie Wall Street, the character Gordon Gecko expounds to an audience of shareholders, “Greed is good.” Gecko, a Wall Street tyrant whose specialty was destroying companies for profit, eventually gets his due in the end. But there are real life market manipulators that prowl the shadows of Wall Street and in the genre of biotech the greed of the market manipulators sometimes kills. People with a cursory understanding of market manipulation understand the tactic of “short and distort.” This is a type of securities fraud in which market manipulators short sell a stock and then spread negative rumors about the company in an attempt to drive down stock prices. Sometimes this fraud is originated by a company’s competitors. Other times it is fueled exclusively by greed. And while a successful short and distort campaign may glean hefty rewards for those who perpetrate the crime, the fiscal malfeasance is often fatal for the company that is attacked. A good example of this is playing out in real time.


Holder’s Lynch Mob in Ferguson
Matthew Vadum
The cop-hating radical lawyers of Eric Holder's Justice Department are reportedly continuing to feed the passions of the lynch mob in Ferguson, Mo., that is screaming for the blood of the white cop who shot and killed a young black man earlier this month in what now almost certainly appears to be an act of self-defense. A white police officer's racism, an allegation for which there is no evidence whatsoever, supposedly caused the unfortunate incident. But the leftists who run the federal government need this. They want it badly. A police officer has to be sacrificed to appease Democrats' political base and to help fend off an increasingly likely Republican takeover of the US Senate in November. Federal civil rights charges may be in the works against Darren Wilson, the white police officer who shot Michael Brown after an intense physical altercation that left Wilson with severe head injuries. The feds may simply ignore local authorities and go forward with a case against Wilson.

The Jihadi Serial Killer
No One's Talking About

Michelle Malkin
For two bloody months, an armed jihadist serial killer ran loose across the country. At least four innocent men died this spring and summer as acts of "vengeance" on behalf of aggrieved Muslims, the self-confessed murderer has now proclaimed. Have you heard about this horror? Probably not. The usual suspects who decry hate crimes and gun violence haven't uttered a peep. Why? Like O.J.'s glove: If the narrative don't fit, you must acquit. The admitted killer will be cast as just another "lone wolf" whose familiar grievances and bloodthirsty Islamic invocations mean nothing. I say: Enough with the whitewashing. Meet Ali Muhammad Brown. His homicidal Islamic terror spree took him from coast to coast. The 29-year-old career thug admitted to killing Leroy Henderson in Seattle in April; Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young in Seattle on June 1; and college student Brendan Tevlin, 19, in Essex County, New Jersey, on June 25. Tevlin was gunned down in his family Jeep on his way home from a friend's house. Ballistics and other evidence linked all the victims to Muhammad Brown. Police apprehended him last month hiding in an encampment near the Watchung Mountains of West Orange, New Jersey.

Two Thumbs on the Scale
Paul R. Hollrah
In a brief press conference at the White House on Monday, August 18, Barack Obama was asked about the ongoing civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri... a response by the black community to the shooting of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old, 6 ft. 4 in. black man, described in various media reports as a "gentle giant." Eyewitness reports indicate that Brown, who just ten minutes earlier had committed a strong-arm robbery of a convenience store, was in the process of attacking a uniformed Ferguson police officer, Darren Wilson, when he was shot to death. In response, Obama said, "I have to be very careful about not pre-judging." But then, in the next breath, he proceeded to pre-judge, as he has so many times before. Attempting to give the impression of racial neutrality in his administration, he concluded by saying, "We have to be careful not to put a thumb on the scale." He apparently has a very short memory.
