The federal government could hit the debt ceiling sooner than expected — and possibly around the November election — according to a report out Friday.
Lawmakers on Capitol Hill had hoped that last summer’s deal to end the nasty fight over lifting the debt ceiling would ensure the issue wouldn’t resurface until at least 2013.
SPOKANE, Wash. — Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said President Obama “surrendered” Thursday when he apologized to the Afghan government for the burning of several Qurans at an American military base near Kabul.
Leave it to liberals when it comes to projecting weakness. Bowing down to savages who use religion to justify murder seems rather stupid, yet our government is doing just that. Perhaps I shouldn’t expect too much from “leaders” who have a gelatinous spines and support primitive cultures.
LAS CRUCES – Three Las Cruces police officers who fatally shot a man in December, along with a fourth officer who did not fire, will not face charges or disciplinary action after the Doña Ana County District Attorney’s Office found the shooting to be justified, it was announced Friday.
Officers were responding to a report of a fight at a party near Espina Street and Foster Road on Dec. 17, 2011, when they stopped 29-year-old Jessicsa Anto’s car. After detaining Anto and putting her in the back of a police car, officers began to search her passenger, 37-year-old Robert Montes, an alleged gang member and convicted felon who was prohibited from owning firearms, and found a small electronic scale, court documents state.
With one of the officers’ attention briefly diverted, Montes ran back to the vehicle and armed himself with a revolver from the car then fired on LCPD Officer Jose Sanchez, who immediately sought cover while his fellow officers, Cody Austin, Peter Bradley Jr., and Sgt. Todd Froats, returned fire, District Attorney Amy Orlando said.
“The conclusion of the District Attorney’s Office, after review, is that the officers returned fire, striking and fatally wounding Montes after Montes fired the first shot,” Orlando said Friday. “We believe that the officers acted in accordance with standard rules and procedures for law enforcement and all officers are hereby cleared from any wrongdoing.”
Now that’s what I call a happy ending! Watch and see if some degenerate lawyer helps the vermin’s family sue the police.
Authorities say a man was arrested after he dropped his gun during a robbery and returned to the scene to try and buy it back from the victims.
Cedrick Mitchell, 39, faces charges of armed home invasion and resisting an officer, according to online jail records. He is being held without bond in Manatee County Jail.
Police said Mitchell entered a motel room and asked for pills from the two men inside. When they responded that they didn’t have any, Mitchell took out his gun and told the men “everything you got,” according to the Bradenton Herald.
Mitchell dropped his gun when the men began to fight with him, police say. One of the victims sprayed him with pepper spray and Mitchell ran away, authorities said.
He returned to the motel room minutes later and offered the men $40 in exchange for the gun he dropped, the Herald reported . He was pepper-sprayed in the face again.
Police found Mitchell when he was running away.
He has a criminal history that includes robbery and battery, according to the newspaper.
The number of deportation cases filed by federal immigration officials dropped by nearly a third in the first three months of the fiscal year, according to a report by the Syracuse University Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse.
The drop recorded in the last three months of 2011 may reflect the Obama administration’s plan to focus its deportation efforts by weighing a variety of discretionary factors, including whether the person is a veteran, came to the U.S. as a child or is a college student, according to the report. But experts said it’s too soon to say if deportations overall will decline.
Barry is just making sure that he keeps enough unregistered Democrats in the nation. It’s a long-term strategy thing.
