Here’s something to think about. NBC News has posted photos of Darren Wilson’s “injuries” when he was taken to the hospital after he killed Michael Brown. The first thing you notice in the photos is the fact that his “injuries” hardly appear at all..
… but it’s chilling when you realize these photos were taken WHILE MICHAEL BROWN’S BODY WAS PROBABLY STILL LYING IN THE STREET… because they waited nearly 4 hours to move it.
Right wingers will say we should accept the grand jury’s one investigation into Michael Brown’s murder, as they refuse to accept conclusions of EIGHT Benghazi investigations that clear the Obama administration of any wrongdoing.

President Obama has reportedly asked for Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s resignation. The president will announce Hagel’s departure at 11:10 AM. Obama’s dissatisfaction with Hagel comes over a disagreement about the US response to ISIL, according to some sources.

President Obama explains why he doesn’t expect to be on the 2016 campaign trail with Democrats very much, because, as he puts it, Americans want “a new car smell” and he’s got “a few dings” after six years.
About Hillary Clinton, whom most expect to be the Democratic nominee, he says:
“She hasn’t announced so I don’t want to jump the gun,” Obama said about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whom he said he speaks with regularly. “If she decides to run, I think she will be a formidable candidate and I think she’d be a great president.”
“She’s not going to agree with me on everything,” the President continued. “And, you know, one of the benefits of running for president is you can stake out your own positions — and have a clean slate, a fresh start.”

Ted Cruz, in his fevered and knee-jerk opposition to anything President Obama says and does, says the midterm elections were a repudiation of what President Obama hopes to accomplish on immigration reform. But all the exit-polling shows otherwise:
Cruz, during an interview with Fox News host Megyn Kelly, more than once said that “this last election was a referendum on amnesty” and that the clear message was “we don’t want amnesty.” It wasn’t, according to exit poll results.
Election voters, by a margin of 57 percent to 39 percent, said those living in the U.S. illegally but working should be offered legal status, according to the exit poll conducted by Edison Research for the National Election Pool, a consortium of news organizations. The gap is also greater than the margin of error of 3 percentage points to 4 percentage points.
Plus, just 14 percent of voters polled said that illegal immigration was “the most important” issue facing the country today, which also undercuts Cruz’s claim. Voters were given only four choices, and immigration ranked third behind the economy (45 percent) and health care (25 percent).
Name the president who issued this executive order:
“Illegal immigrants in considerable numbers have become productive members of our society and are a basic part of our work force. Those who have established equities in the United States should be recognized and accorded legal status.”
Boehner and the House Republicans have finally filed their lawsuit against President Obama because he didn’t implement all of Obamacare… a law they said would utterly destroy America.
So… does that mean they’re suing Obama for NOT destroying America?
