Laquan McDonald Video Shows Police Shooting Him 16 Times (GRAPHIC VIDEO)

Laquan McDonald VideoThe much-anticipated police dashboard cam video of a Chicago Police officer shooting and killing a 17-year-old was released Tuesday evening, offering a graphic and chilling view of what prosecutors say was first-degree murder.

Kerry Tells Netanyahu: U.S. Will Not Recognize Settlement Blocs in Return for West Bank Gestures

Kerry and NetanyahuSecretary of State John Kerry, currently on a visit to the region, told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during their meeting on Tuesday that the United States would not agree to recognize construction in the West Bank settlement blocs in exchange for Israeli steps in the West Bank, as Netanyahu had suggested during their meeting in the U.S. two weeks ago.

Deputy State Department Spokesman Mark Toner told reporters during the daily briefing that the American answer to Netanyahu’s demand in this matter was “a big no.” He added that both Republican and Democratic administrations regarded construction in the settlements and Israeli attempts to create facts on the ground as undermining a two-state solution.


Another big corporation is flagrantly dodging tax. This must be outlawed

Another corporation evades taxesNo invention of modern capitalism so enrages the public as does the tax haven. When giant corporations and very rich people choose not to pay their taxes, and government turns a blind eye, faith in the state crumbles.

The decision of the American drugs giant, Pfizer, to merge with Dublin-based Allergan, thereby “relocating” its headquarters to Ireland is not because some wizard potion has been discovered in the hills of Connemara. It is to dodge tax. The same has applied to Starbucks, Amazon, Google and countless other global companies.


Kentucky Governor Restores Voting Rights To Nonviolent Former Felons

Beshear- Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear (D) signed an executive order on Tuesday that would automatically restore voting rights to a large number of former felons who have served their sentences. The executive order would not apply to individuals who were convicted of violent crimes, sex crimes, bribery or treason.

Beshear, who has served as governor for eight years, said at a press conference that more than 100,000 people would be affected. The Brennan Center for Justice says about 140,000 individuals are immediately eligible, and another 30,000 will be eligible over time.

Trump NH status upheldThe New Hampshire Ballot Law Commission on Tuesday quickly and unanimously threw out a challenge to Donald Trump's eligibility to be on the state ballot.

The challenge was brought on by Fergus Cullen, the former New Hampshire GOP chairman, who said he was motivated by a longstanding worry that the real estate mogul could hand the election to Hillary Clinton.


In taking economic war to Islamic State, U.S. developing new tools

ISISSince last month, U.S. warplanes have struck Islamic State's oil infrastructure in Syria in a stepped-up campaign of economic warfare that the United States estimates has cut the group's black-market earnings from oil by about a third.

In finding their targets, U.S. military planners have relied in part on an unconventional source of intelligence: access to banking records that provide insight into which refineries and oil pumps are generating cash for the extremist group, current and former officials say.
