The Americans are coming! Some in a Texas county fear an Obama-led U.S. military invasion.

The Americnas are ComingThe office of the Bastrop County Republican Party is in an old lumber mill on Main Street, with peeling brown paint and a sign out front that captures the party’s feelings about the Obama administration: “WISE UP AMERICA!”

Inside, county Chairman Albert Ellison pulled out a yellow legal pad on which he had handwritten page after page of reasons why many Texans distrust President Obama, including the fact that, “in the minds of some, he was raised by communists and mentored by terrorists.”

Americans not proudFewer people consider in themselves to be "extremely proud" to be an American compared to a decade ago, a new Gallup poll indicates.

The survey found that while most people -- 54 percent -- consider themselves "extremely proud" to be American, that number is down from a peak of 70 percent in 2003. The surge in patriotism occurred two years after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

Progressive rebels in the American south fight a flag – and the Klansman next door

KKKOn a clay hill south of town, County Road 258 splits between two houses, right and left. I went to the right, recently, when a young black woman stepped outside. She wore a T-shirt that read “Ole Miss”.

She smiled. She didn’t realize she stood on the front line of a cultural war, where new arguments over an old flag are only the latest skirmish.

“I’m looking for Daniel Orr,” I said. “A Ku Klux Klan guy.”

She laughed. “Danny lives right there,” she said, pointing to the other house. “But no, Danny’s not in the Klan.”

Obama Plans Broader Use of Clemency to Free Nonviolent Drug Offenders

Obama and clemency for drug usersSometime in the next few weeks, aides expect President Obama to issue orders freeing dozens of federal prisoners locked up on nonviolent drug offenses. With the stroke of his pen, he will probably commute more sentences at one time than any president has in nearly half a century.

The expansive use of his clemency power is part of a broader effort by Mr. Obama to correct what he sees as the excesses of the past, when politicians eager to be tough on crime threw away the key even for minor criminals. With many Republicans and Democrats now agreeing that the nation went too far, Mr. Obama holds the power to unlock that prison door, especially for young African-American and Hispanic men disproportionately affected.

Four accused in slave-labor trafficking ring on Ohio egg farm

Ohio slave traffickingFour people were indicted Thursday in a slave-labor ring that smuggled Guatemalan teens and adults into the United States and forced them to live in squalid conditions while working at an Ohio egg farm.

Federal investigators said recruiters enlisted adults and teens in Guatemala, some as young as 14, on the promise of good jobs in the United States and a good education. The laborers were smuggled across the border to Marion, located about 50 miles north of Columbus, where they lived in dilapidated trailers. They were forced to work at a chicken farm where they spent 12 hours a day cleaning coops, debeaking chickens and loading and unloading crates of chickens. The indictment said the workers were threatened with bodily harm if they refused work.

New Orleans cop beat teenA teenage girl struck by a shackle-wielding New Orleans police officer told authorities last year that she was having nightmares about her violent treatment at the city’s juvenile detention center, according to an investigative file released this week.
