Oath Keepers armed group offers to protect Kim Davis from arrest

Kim Davis An armed group called the Oath Keepers has vowed to defend Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis from arrest by U.S. Marshals if she keeps defying a federal judge’s order to issue marriage licenses in accordance with the Supreme Court’s June ruling legalizing same-sex marriages nationwide. Davis says she is exercising her constitutional freedom of religion.

Davis stopped issuing all marriage licenses in her Rowan County office after the ruling, citing her opposition to same-sex marriage as a Christian. The American Civil Liberties Union brought a federal suit against her on behalf of four couples denied licenses, and she became a hero to many conservative Christians and opponents of gay marriage.


Samuel DuBose shooting was due to 'critical errors in judgment', report finds

Samuel DuBose shootingThe fatal shooting of an unarmed black man by a former University of Cincinnati police officer occurred as a result of “critical errors in judgment” and “poor police tactics” by the officer who killed him, according to an independent report released on Friday.

Samuel DuBose was fatally shot on 19 July by officer Ray Tensing, 26, of the University of Cincinnati’s police department during a routine off-campus traffic stop. Tensing has since been charged with murder, and a trial is expected to begin later this year. He was summarily fired.

1 lawmaker expelled, another resigns after affair cover-up

Todd CourseOne socially conservative Michigan lawmaker was expelled from office and another resigned early Friday after they rocked the Legislature with an extramarital affair and a botched attempt to conceal it with a fictional, sexually explicit email.

Republican Rep. Cindy Gamrat became just the fourth legislator to be kicked out in state history shortly after 4 a.m. An hour earlier, GOP Rep. Todd Courser resigned, effective immediately, when it became clear that majority Republicans had secured enough support from Democrats for his expulsion by promising to ask the attorney general and state police to investigate the lawmakers.

Both were immediately escorted from the chamber.


Washington Supreme Court Expels Charter Schools From State Public School System

Wahington charter schools are not part of public systemThe charter school movement has been expelled from Washington state’s public education system, with a Supreme Court ruling late Friday that the privately run schools are not public schools under the state’s constitution.

Meanwhile, the quick fix for that sizeable hurdle sought by the state’s charter school proponents—a special legislative session—does not appear likely because Washington’s public education sector is embroiled in more controversial and larger battles.


50 Spies Say ISIS Intelligence Was Cooked

ISIS intel was cookedMore than 50 intelligence analysts working out of the U.S. military's Central Command have formally complained that their reports on ISIS and al Qaeda’s branch in Syria were being inappropriately altered by senior officials, The Daily Beast has learned.

The complaints spurred the Pentagon’s inspector general to open an investigation into the alleged manipulation of intelligence. The fact that so many people complained suggests there are deep-rooted, systemic problems in how the U.S. military command charged with the war against the self-proclaimed Islamic State assesses intelligence.

“The cancer was within the senior level of the intelligence command,” one defense official said.
