The bizarre attack at the White House and Capitol today was reportedly perpetrated by a 34-year-old dental hygienist licensed in Connecticut. Miriam Carey, who was killed by law enforcement after ramming White House barricades and fleeing to the Capitol, had a toddler in the car with her, according to New York Post reporting: Sources said Miriam Carey, who formerly lived in Brooklyn, was licensed to practice in New York and Connecticut and had a permit to work as a hygienist in Connecticut prisons. At least a dozen gunshots were fired when she tried to flee cops, who had trapped her two blocks

I don´t understand why there isn´t a big fuss about the police behavior. The woman wasn´t shooting; she didn´t have a gun. They needed to stop her car, not kill her. Why didn´t they shoot her tires? They were very close to her; it wouldn´t have been that hard.

There is something very troubling about the police response. It just doesn´t seem right. There was a good two or three seconds when they had her car surrounded before she took off the first time. The police couldn´t have been more than two or three feet from the car. Why not shoot the tires out? It would have slowed her down. Of course, I am not familiar with police procedures. Maybe they feared the car was packed with explosives. Something just seems fishy about this whole situation.

Hear, hear posters. Why in the world would they shoot at her? She was probably having a psychotic episode. Think they were trying to shoot out her tires and missed by about a mile? Good grief! Of course, you probably couldn´t get fired from the Capitol Hill or D.C. police if you were blind and deaf. Or maybe it was the Not-so-Great Caesar´s Praetorian Guard.....

Reminds me of Ruby Ridge, Waco, Ellia and on and on. They killed this woman, who was apparently unarmed -with a CHILD in the car - but they were told to "stand down" at the Navy Yard???? What is going on with the cops in D.C.???

I smell a LOT of tort lawyers coming.

I bet Obama is hiding under his bed. And may he live that way the rest of his life.

And yes, we need to do something about the mentally ill.

If no one ever had invented the gun, this woman would be alive today.

Don´t tell me they didn´t see that baby girl in the back seat when they converged on her car, yet they still shoot at her vehicle like it´s some Hollywood movie. You know they were all sh´ing bricks back at the station afterward; anyone could have been killed on that street, including one of their own!

And remember everyone, don´t lose your "stuff" anywhere near 0bama or you´ll be taken out.

I find the police action appalling and I favor law-and-order. I also favor putting mentally ill people in the hospital for treatment and not letting them out to drive around with baby´s in their car.

The problem starts with the failure of the Secret Service police to properly operate the security perimeter barricade systems.

Everything that follows that THEY say about it is a police coverup.

Her body was still warm when we had ABC telling us she had a history of mental illness. So how did they know her name? Did the cops do a car tag check on the vehicle while she was cruising up Pennsylvania avene?

Subsequent reports are that she was not known to have had any mental treatment or examination for mental illness. So, what was ABC talking about? Why did the cops say she was crazy? Is this Gnarls Barkley´s girl?

I think not.

And shooting at the baby? They knew there was a baby girl in the car ~ or at least a child carrier ~ so they waited until she got out of the car to shoot her 15 times? Obviously some problems in that story line. The cops were shooting at her and each other all along the line of travel ~ because of that I doubt we´ll ever know the truth ´cause there are some guys who will lie because there are other cops involved.

Arm chair police out in force today. Asking why police didn´t just "shoot out the tire" is like asking why police don´t just shoot an armed suspect "in the leg". Its a dynamic situation, where split second decisions have to be made.

In todays world, where bad guys/terroists frequently use vehicles to ram and then detonate their target, it is not unimaginable to believe that these officers thought that what was going down. Police country wide train for that exact scenario.

What if this WAS a terrorists incident and the vehicle exploded, killing dozens? Would you folks be here commenting on why the police didn´t shoot the vehicle up full of holes??

I´m not gonna castigate these guys until more details emerge.

If you´ve ever driven around DC you know that it can be confusing even for people who live and work around there. It would not surprise me if she got confused and pulled in somewhere she shouldn´t have, or was trying to get directions, then suddenly found herself surrounded by aggressive police and just freaked out. The multitude of police in DC then did what they do best and overreacted to a situation that should not have ended with shots being fired. I think there´s a lot more to this than meets the eye and all entities involved are in full threaten/coverup mode.

´´Police country wide train for that exact scenario.´´ And woe unto any of us who happen to trigger their automatic response. Beware of any people who have given up their own reasoning ability in order to serve their masters. Do I want the protection of police or military people who fit that description? No, thank you. The death of innocents at their hands isn´t worth it. And how many of those shooters who killed that woman yesterday will be haunted by that act for the rest of their lives? And the lives of their loved ones will suffer. So many will hurt for so long from the fear that caused them to respond blindly.

Re#18:"Arm chair police out in force today." So, I take that to mean that if one is not a police officer, then having an opinion of the actions of the police officers who ostensibly work for us is not allowed. Once we have hired these people, armed them with FULLY automatic weapons (not the semi-autos that we humble subjects of the crown are allowed) , given them armored vehicles and dressed them up in their black ninja outfits; we are to give them carte blanche to do whatever moves them at the moment, and, since we are not members of the Brotherhood of the Badge, we are forbidden to even comment on their actions? Did I get that straight? Only cops can criticise cops? Really?

Yes, I know: "They are out on the dangerous streets every day". Well, we peasants are out on the same dangerous streets every day, too. Except WE are usually unarmed, unarmored and without backup. What we are told to do is call 911 and wait for the ninjas to break away from knocking down the door of the wrong house and hosing the occupants long enough to come and draw a chalk outline around us.

And if she´d aimed that 2,000 deadly weapon at the sidewalk and mowed down a dozen or so innocent citizens, would everyone be singing from the "Cops Killed An Unarmed Woman, hymnal?

No, I think the hue and cry would have been something along the lines of, "Lousy danged cops couldn´t even act before a crazy woman killed a dozen people."

Damned if they do, damned if they don´t.

So now every incident that occurs is automatically deemed mental illness? Really? Or is that just a cloak? Only Obama would be so afraid of a woman and it shows how trigger happy DC police are protecting the poseur. I´ve always believed deadly force is justified only if the perp did harm or was about to harm someone. Can´t definitely say that was the case here, yet. Cops lie sometimes about someone being threatened with car violence to justify their shooting actions. Check some of the executions on youtube sometime during traffic stops.

These weird things that keep happening echo what #20 says: Every time Obama´s back is up against the wall, he has reason to be very angry or someone has made him the no-clothes emperor once again these things are happening. Do they have these psychos in line, ready to go, to unleash on the public as Obama vents and delivers a vendetta? Their deeds ending it death make it the perfect crime every time: Dead men/women tell no tales.

No time to read the whole thread, but they reported on Fox a while ago that she was being treated for schizophrenia since the head injury she suffered a while back. Her boss said she had a "significant head injury" when she fell on some stairs, and had to be hospitalized. While in hospital she found out she was pregnant. Baby was born in August 2012, so do math.

Were the DC Cops in this incident "Trigger-Happy Goons" or "heroes" protecting Der Fuehrer Obama? Answer: Trigger Happy Goons.
The DC cops executed that woman for being in the wrong place at the wrong time and acting erratically. It is a miracle that baby in the car was not hurt. Nothing professional about shooting wildly into a car with a baby in the back seat. We´ll never know who gave the order to "Stand Down" in Benghazi, or who ordered the trigger-happy cops to "Shoot To Kill" the unarmed woman in the car. Sad but that´s the regime we are living under. Remember, The New Black Panthers were
telling us "Now you will know what it is like to be ruled by a Black Man". Yes we know, now, and it ain´t pretty being ruled by a half-black idiot.

Dear Clueless Ones:

They shot her because she was using her cars a weapon.

That they failed to effectively box her car in at the circle in front of the Capitol is inexplicable and unforgiveable. If they had a freaking clue and had boxed her car in with their cars, the ensuing chase would not have happened. The Republicans will be blamed for the absence of anyone among the Capitol Police who could tell their butt from a hole in the ground.

Story in the New York Post states that the lady had a good job, making $100,000 a year as a dental hygienist, until her head injury and subsequent dismissal due to being too rough with patients. Her sister is a retired NYPD sergeant, and neighbors say she was a smart, good person.

Did they have to shoot her? I don´t know, but she did have a baby with her, you would think they would have tried to stop her some other way.

I heard one analyst explain that only in the movies do cops shoot out tires or try for a leg shot. He said real cops shoot to kill and blast the car in that effort. What would have happened if that car was packed with explosives? Could a bullet have blown cars, cops, and the Capitol to kingdom come? I really would not want to be in the same county as one of these shoot outs.

AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

The Pulitzer Prize board has just managed to do the impossible.

The award of the Public Service prize to the Washington Post and the Guardian for serving as a mouthpiece for Edward Snowden is an attempt by the journalistic establishment to put its stamp of approval on the actions of one of the most destructive traitors in U.S. history—a former NSA contractor who has done

A Texas man was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in state prison for urinating on the Alamo. Daniel Athens, a 23-year-old El Paso resident, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a criminal mischief charge in connection with the April 2012 incident at the Texas shrine. While Athens could have faced a maximum of two years in custody, a plea deal saved him up to six months in custody. Athens was also ordered to pay $4000 in restitution by District Judge Ray Olivarri. Since Athens is not eligible for parole, he will have to serve the entirety of his 18-month sentence. As detailed

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

For political junkies desperate for clues to the hottest House, Senate and governors’ races around the country, April is the cruelest month. While Illinois and Texas primaries were held last month, the 48 remaining state contests don’t start up again for three weeks. Here’s the good news for those of us hoping to determine whether Democrats or Republicans will be celebrating in the fall: From early May to early September, we’ll have a steady stream of conventions, primaries and runoffs to keep us busy. We’ve already learned a little from the first two contests. On March 4, Texas told us two contradictory

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Over 80 members of the Brandeis University faculty sent a letter to the school’s president earlier this month, demanding the school withdraw its honorary degree invitation to women’s rights activist and critic of Islam Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Brandeis rescinded the invitation to Hirsi Ali last week, prompting a public backlash from Hirsi Ali’s supporters. In the April 6 letter, faculty members called on Brandeis President Fred Lawrence to drop Hirsi Ali from the ceremony because of comments she has made about her opposition to Islam. “We are writing to urge you to rescind immediately the invitation to Ms. Ayaan Hirsi

He may not have been able to attend the Sochi Olympics, but Vice President Joe Biden is set to return to the world sporting event stage this summer by hanging out at the World Cup, the White House announced today. Biden is very excited. "You know, we have our Super Bowl, we have our World Series, we have the NBA Finals, we have March Madness, but my Lord, it is nothing quite like the World Cup," he said today as he and Secretary of State John Kerry unveiled the World Cup trophy. Kerry, meanwhile, stuck with boring comments like "I can´t think

Obama´s Numbers Worse News For Democrats

Bad as Obama’s poll numbers are, they bode worse for Congressional Democrats. Obama is being buoyed by continued strong support from Democrat voters. The problem for Congressional Democrats is that November’s election outcome will not be determined in Democrat strongholds. Recent Quinnipiac polling data (released April 2, of 1,578 registered voters nationwide, with a MOE of +/-2.5%) showed the president with a deeply negative rating on his handling of the economy: 40% approval and 55% disapproval. In his sixth year in office, and the fifth year after the recession, 74% of respondents still rated the economy as “not so good” to

During her brief but lucrative stint as president of Wal-Mart’s charitable foundation in 2012, Sylvia Matthews Burwell received at least $750,000 in bonuses from an organization that doles out hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions but keeps a tight lid on its own compensation practices, records show. Ms. Burwell spent a little more than a year running Wal-Mart’s foundation before President Obama tapped her to be his budget chief last year — and then last week asked her to take over as health and human services secretary. Her White House biography touts her key private-sector experience as president of the massive

The Supreme Court has made pretty clear that putting your money where your mouth is deserves broad protection as a form of free political speech. The justices are about to consider whether outright lying in a campaign deserves a similar First Amendment shield. The court’s recent decisions easing the flow of generous campaign contributions already shifted the electoral landscape. If the court finds that even the most patently outrageous statements about candidates may not be barred by law, those two decisions combined could expand the rhetorical battlefield of the midterm elections and raise the attack ad volume as never before.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004.

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
