Who were 2014’s winners and losers? Charles Krauthammer counts “the Castro brothers” among the year’s biggest winners.“They had to wait through 10 presidencies to get to a president who would give them everything they want in return for nothing,” Krauthammer said on Fox News’ “Special Report.” “And they got the jackpot: a genuinely ideological left-wing president who gave away the store.”

North Korea should compensate Sony Pictures for the damages it caused by launching a cyberattack against Sony Pictures, and by issuing terrorist threats against movie theaters that screen one of its movies, according to a State Department spokeswoman.
To understand what’s happening here, we need to go back to the collapse of the civil rights movement in the late 60s. In exchange for control of the newly-ratified black vote, Democrats dramatically expanded government welfare both through ADC and Lyndon B. Johnson’s “Great Society” programs. As has often been pointed out, this led to the deterioration of the urban black family, with young single black women with children “marrying” Uncle Sam in preference to their hapless male opposite numbers, unwilling to complete their educations and unable to obtain decent employment. The result was generations of young black men deprived of any sexual or social purpose. These lost generations comprised a kind of bonus to the left, with black male drifters viewed as an urban proletariat that could be exploited for revolutionary purposes. (There has never been an actual “proletariat” in the European sense in the U.S. The history of the American left can be viewed as a search for one, first among American workers in the late 19th century, then among foreign-born immigrant workers in the ensuing decades, devolving at last to rogue urban minority males.)
“We are now under intense threat from those who are misguided — from those who are trying to blame everyone from civil rights leaders to the mayor rather than deal with an ugly spirit that all of us need to fight,” he said.
BATTLE LINES? In New York, tensions between police and Mayor Bill de Blasio boil over after killings – The Washington Post
But only 34 percent of whites had a favorable view, compared with 71 percent of African Americans and 56 percent of Hispanics.
To de Blasio, that wall of trust is a barrier to his agenda of class and race warfare. He harped on a “tale of two cities” and “income inequality” not to fix problems, but as a revolutionary whistle for those radicals who want to smash Wall Street, capitalism and American norms.
Angry NYPD officers turned their backs on Mayor de Blasio as he entered the hospital where two officers died.
Suffering from decades of kidnapping, rape, torture, mutilation, murder and mass murder; brutalized by drug cartels and their government enablers, Mexico’s disarmed rural populations have taken up arms in their own defense – illegally – and formed citizen militias. These autodefensas are locked in battle with vicious drug cartels, corrupt local police, the Mexican military and the recently formed faux citizens’ police force called Fuerza Rural.
I’m reading about the slaughter of 132 school children in Pakistan today. A teacher is believed to have been burned alive while her pupils were forced to watch. I read the account with horror. I was horrified at what took place…. but not surprised.
The attack was carried out by nine Taliban terrorists.
I then read about the families of nine people killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre suing the maker of the AR-15 used in the attack.
Their lawsuit states that the weapon should not have been sold because it had no reasonable civilian purpose.
The Sandy Hook tragedy spawned an aggressive anti-gun campaign with images of some mothers demanding “gun-free” schools, while others were horrified at drills held on school premises to train teachers and students how to respond to violent threats.
The mothers were horrified because the guns used in the drills might scare their children.
We are sitting on the brink of our own Peshawar here in the United States. We have 1,000’s of lone wolves, known wolves and organized Islamic terrorist groups operating in the United States.
All of whom are looking to make a grand statement in support of Allah and punch their ticket to paradise.
Our schools, filled with our precious children, are unarmed and indefensible. Schools that are looked upon as high-value targets by these extremists. Perfect targets for the homegrown American jihadist.
And about half of this country still believe that slapping “gun-free zone” stickers on the doors and windows of their schools is the way to deal with this threat… whether it comes from a lone shooter, a lone wolf or an organized terrorist group.
So what is the solution? Police? No. They won’t be there when the attack happens. Armed guards? Maybe. Except most school systems will not be able to afford enough guards with suitable training to counter an attack.
The solution is simple. Train and then arm the teachers and administrators. Every school should have a security force, composed of teachers and administrators, who are highly trained and capable of thwarting an attack. They’re on the front line. They will be there when the attack starts. And with proper training they will be able to eliminate the threat and minimize any damage.

“It’s probably the first time in Australian history that something this major in regards to a terrorist threat has happened,” Joshua Martin told Reuters.
Making Whitey Suffer: The kind of rhetoric that justifies destroying, invading, and looting the property of others…
That is the kind of rhetoric that justifies destroying, invading, and looting the property of others who had nothing whatsoever to do with the cases at hand. But the perpetrators are not in search of answers or even justice. They seek vengeance.
But the military isn’t the only mainstream institution that the gangsters — more specifically, the gangs’ leaders — compare themselves to. “We’re looking to market, sell and profit off drugs the way any business would handle their product,” the Crips’ second-in-command tells Deutsch. “Only our product is illegal so more precautions have to be taken. It’s all systematic and planned, all the positions and responsibilities and assignments. All of that’s part of our business strategy.”
Many in the crowd participated in what was touted as a group act of noncompliance, passing their guns to one another. No one was arrested as a result, and Washington State Patrol trooper Guy Gill said the agency was not treating the acts as a crime.
With thousands expected at the next march, Merkel is in a dilemma. Her security officials are warning of an increase in hate crimes, while opinion polls show support for the marchers’ calls for a tougher German immigration policy.
“There is a visible rise in xenophobic crime countrywide,” police chief Holger Muench told Welt am Sonntag, which like most German Sunday newspapers focused on Monday’s march by a group calling itself PEGIDA – an acronym for “Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West”.
As the diplomatic chill over Ukraine deepens, the Kremlin seems keener than ever to enlist Europes far-right parties in its campaign for influence in the West, seeking new relationships based largely on shared concern over the growing clout of the EU.
The mothers of four slain black men and boys, three of whom were killed by police sat down with CNN’s Anderson Cooper for a heart-wrenching interview where they made one thing absolutely clear: their sons would be alive if they were white.
