Yesterday late in the afternoon the Wisconsin Department of Justice released some preliminary findings with regard to its investigation into the officer-involved shooting of Jacob Blake. (Snip)initial reports were that Blake had come to the location where his car was parked in order to help break-up an alternation between two women. (Snip) we learn that Blake had not been asked to come to the location to help break up an altercation between two females, we learn that his presence at the location wasn’t welcome by his girlfriend, and there may have been legal process outstanding against him that made it illegal for him to be there, such as a

President Trump on Thursday will deliver his speech officially accepting the Republican nomination for president from the White House lawn. That fact alone has Democrats and the Left losing their collective mind. Trump’s speech is supposed to underscore America’s greatness, which is likely to trigger leftists from Portland to . . . er, Portland. But he could do so much more. Here are 25 ways the president could cause the Left to melt down even more—if that’s possible—on the final night of the Republican National Convention. 25) “Vote-by-mail violates international norms. Also, voter ID is the norm across the world. I guess the Democrats do believe in American exceptionalism

Yesterday Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old accused of shooting three rioters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, killing two and injuring one, was arrested. He was charged with first-degree intentional homicide. President Trump has since sent in the feds and the national guard after the useless governor of Wisconsin previously turned down offers of support. Hooligans are rioting because a black man with a criminal record of violence was shot by cops when he resisted arrest, marched to his car and appeared to reach into grab something. A knife was found in the car. Was Jacob Blake was trying to grab a gun? I wouldn’t want to wait and find out.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said on Thursday that Joe Biden should not participate in debates with President Trump during the general election campaign. “Don’t tell anybody I told you this, especially don’t tell Joe Biden: I don’t think there should be any debates,” Pelosi told reporters at a press conference. “I do not think that the president of the United States has comported himself in a way that has any association with truth, evidence, data, and facts. I wouldn’t legitimize a conversation with him, nor a debate in terms of the presidency of the United States.”

Convention season ain’t over till the dead cat bounces. A dead cat bounce, as followers of the animal spirits of the market know, is a small recovery in the value of a declining asset. As the wisdom of those who work in tall buildings has it, even a dead cat bounces if you drop it from a high window.(Snip)Biden hasn’t just failed to achieve a post-conference bounce. The four-day blast of hot air from the Democrats has hoisted Biden by his own petard, and boosted support for Donald Trump, including in the swing states where it matters most. Look at the trend in three polls that came out on

Sister Deirdre Byrne has served under a wide array of diverse titles. A sister, soldier, and surgeon, the nun took on the title of a speaker at Wednesday’s Republican National Convention, where she spoke on behalf of the unborn and fulfilled a wish she prayed for. “I must confess that I recently prayed while in chapel begging God to allow me to be a voice and instrument for human life, and now here I am, speaking at the Republican National Convention,” Byrne said. “I guess you better be careful for what you pray for.” (Snip)she spent nearly 30 years in the military and was colonel in the U.S. Army Medical Corps

Lezmond Mitchell, the only Native American on death row, was executed Wednesday evening at the federal prison in Terre Haute. Mitchell, 38, was a member of the Navajo Nation. He was convicted of killing 63-year-old Alyce Slim, and her 9-year-old granddaughter, Tiffany Lee, in Arizona in 2001. (Snip) Following the execution, an attorney for Daniel Lee, father of the slain 9-year-old girl, read a prepared statement on behalf of Lee, who stood nearby.

On May 29, 2020, the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office charged former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin with third-degree murder (later raised to second-degree by Minnesota’s attorney general) in the death of George Floyd. (Snip)These charges were based on the autopsy performed by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office and a private “re-autopsy” performed at the request of the Floyd family’s attorney. Based on those procedures, the medical examiner issued a revised autopsy report stating that Floyd had died of “cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint and neck compression.” (Snip) But the police defendants were charged before the medical examiner had received the report of Floyd’s toxicology screen by NMS Labs

The YouTube video below, which seems to be a capture of a more than five-hour-long “live blog,” shows the best vantage I’ve seen of the sequence of events leading up to the first shooting Wisconsin. As is almost always the case, the “hot takes,” which hit Twitter in the first minutes after an incident such as this, are almost always wrong.(Snip)The first fact you see from the video is that the shooter was chased by the person he shot, and as they passed through the parking lot of the boarded-up gas station, the “victim” threw something at the shooter. There are reports that the item thrown was an unlit

Two broad camps divide American conservatism today: those who get it, and those who don’t — the woke and unwoke, if I may borrow a lefty term but give it a slightly different meaning. For the right to have any shot at taming liberalism’s raging furies, woke conservatives must remain ascendant and consolidate the movement. President Trump was among the first to get it, in his own intuitive, messy way. The ambitious Missouri senator Josh Hawley is likewise woke. So are Attorney General Bill Barr and Fox News host Tucker Carlson. But too many credentialed conservatives don’t get it. (Snip) It is simply this: that the political left neither loves you nor

The first Washington Redskins game I remember attending was their November 10, 1991 dismantling of the Atlanta Falcons during their last Super Bowl season. I was not yet eight years old. Thanks largely to my father, who had been cheering for the Redskins since he was a kid in 1960s Alabama (the owner at the time, George Preston Marshall, had effectively promoted the team on television in the South), I was a diehard fan. (Snip) I grew up in what was at the time one of the outer D.C. suburbs of Virginia. Back then, its rural character was still visible in pockets, but it was increasingly being overrun by suburban sprawl
