Hmm, Uber-Lib Bill Maher has a lucid moment and spoke the truth on something other than ISIS and radical Islam …
During HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, the always liberal opinionated comedian stated in regards to the Ferguson, Missouri shooting that Michael Brown was not acting like a “Gentle Giant”. He was acting like a thug. Of course Maher also had to call police officer Darren Wilson a “plain murderer,” even though it would appear that from information leaked from the grand jury states otherwise.
Calling Michael Brown a thug, does that make Maher a racist?
BILL MAHER: You know what else I find disturbing is that everybody in America just sides with their own people and doesn’t look at the facts. The cops, I saw on the news a couple of weeks ago, were wearing bracelets or something that said, “I am Darren Wilson.” Why do you want to throw your lot in with this plain murderer?
And Michael Brown’s people. I’m sorry, but Michael Brown’s people say he is a gentle giant. Well, we saw of when he was in that 7-11. No, he wasn’t a gentle giant. He was committing a robbery and he pushed that guy. He was acting like a thug, not a gentle giant. He certainly didn’t deserve to be shot for it.
EXIT COMMENT: Enough of calling Michael Brown an armed armed teenager. If he was going for the police officer’s gun as many accounts have stated, that does not make him unarmed and certainly not a gentle giant. Every year police officers are killed with their own guns. I wonder if the Ferguson, Mo story would have been covered differently if the officer’s name had been Nicola Cotton?
Evidence Supports Police Officer Darren Wilson’s Account of Shooting in Ferguson, MO in Shooting of Michael Brown … Eric Holder Only Concerned About Info Leaks, Not the Truth
So what happens if Police officer Darin Wilson is not found guilty or even indicted? Will Barack Obama, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson apologize?
The WAPO reports that Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson and Michael Brown fought for control of the officer’s gun, then later Wilson shot Brown dead as the teenager confronted the police officer. Hmm, that is a much different story than was originally told and the MSM misreporting. The evidence is starting to point to officer Wilson did nothing wrong. According to the WAPO, 7 or 8 African American eyewitnesses have provided testimony consistent with Wilson’s account, but none have spoken publicly out of fear for their safety. A note to the folks in Ferguson, there is a difference between justice and vengeance.
Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson and Michael Brown fought for control of the officer’s gun, and Wilson fatally shot the unarmed teenager after he moved toward the officer as they faced off in the street, according to interviews, news accounts and the full report of the St. Louis County autopsy of Brown’s body.
Because Wilson is white and Brown was black, the case has ignited intense debate over how police interact with African American men. But more than a half-dozen unnamed black witnesses have provided testimony to a St. Louis County grand jury that largely supports Wilson’s account of events of Aug. 9, according to several people familiar with the investigation who spoke with The Washington Post.
Some of the physical evidence — including blood spatter analysis, shell casings and ballistics tests — also supports Wilson’s account of the shooting, The Post’s sources said, which casts Brown as an aggressor who threatened the officer’s life. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are prohibited from publicly discussing the case.
The grand jury is expected to complete its deliberations next month over whether Wilson broke the law in confronting Brown, and the pending decision appears to be prompting the unofficial release of information about the case and what the jurors have been told.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch late Tuesday night published Brown’s official county autopsy report, an analysis of which also suggests that the 18-year-old may not have had his hands raised when he was fatally shot, as has been the contention of protesters who have demanded Wilson’s arrest.
However, Benjamin L. Crump, an attorney for the Brown family, stated that any facts that support police officer Darren Wilson’s will never be accepted as the truth by Brown’s supporters or family. Far be it that the facts get in the way of a riot in Ferguson, MO.
Benjamin L. Crump, an attorney for the Brown family, said Brown’s family and supporters will not be convinced by the autopsy report or eyewitness statements that back Wilson’s account of the incident.
The family has not believed anything the police or this medical examiner has said,” Crump said. “They have their witnesses. We have seven witnesses that we know about that say the opposite.”

Oscar-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams, who dazzled in such wide-ranging dramatic and comedic roles as alien, nanny, therapist and cartoon genie during a four-decades long career, was found dead in his northern California home in a suspected suicide Monday. He was 63.
The Marin County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement that Williams was found unconscious and not breathing in his home around noon. The statement said the investigation into Williams’ death is ongoing, but the coroner “suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia.”
A representative for Williams said in a statement the actor had been battling “severe depression of late.”
“This is a tragic and sudden loss,” Mara Buxbaum said. “The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”
The death of Robin Williams is truly like a death of so many childhood memories. So many great TV shows and movies. But the best of all was his brilliant comic ad-lib. I can remember Robin Williams from when he first came to our TV’s on Happy Days as Mork. This would in turn spin off into Mork & Mindy where he starred with Pam Dawber as an alien living in Bolder, CO. Williams starred in some of my favorite movies like The Bird Cage, Good Morning Vietnam, Good Will Hunting, August Rush, Moscow on the Hudson, The World According to Garp and Dead Poets Society.
Mork Meets The Fonz
Mork & Mindy: 1978 – 1982 (Season 2 Episode 2 Stark Raving Mork)
Good Morning Vietnam
Dead Poets Society – the mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation; don’t resign to that…
Not only a great movie scene, but words to live by. “We much constantly look at things in a different way. Just when you think you know something, you have to look at it in a different way.”
Robin Williams Crazy First Appearance on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show
Things that make you go hmm …
A coroner has ruled that the death of James Baker, former White House Press Secretary under President Ronald Reagan, was a homicide. Hmm, I must admit like at Hot Air, I was a bit surprised to read the headline when it came across. I thought to myself, was he poisoned. How could 73 year old James Baker’s death have been a homicide? I did not remember reading anything of the sort when he died August 4, 2014 in in Obit. And now for something a little different. Brady’s death has been ruled a homicide 33 years after he was wounded in an assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan at the hands of John W. Hinckley Jr.
The death this week of James S. Brady, the former White House press secretary, has been ruled a homicide 33 years after he was wounded in an assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan, police department officials here said Friday.
Officials said the ruling was made by the medical examiner in Northern Virginia, where Mr. Brady died Monday at 73. The medical examiner’s office would not comment on the cause and manner of Mr. Brady’s death.
“We did do an autopsy on Mr. Brady, and that autopsy is complete,” a spokeswoman said.
Gail Hoffman, a spokeswoman for the Brady family, said the ruling should really “be no surprise to anybody.”
“Jim had been long suffering severe health consequences since the shooting,” she said, adding that the family had not received official word of the ruling from either the medical examiner’s office or the police.
The question that arises is whether f John W. Hinckley Jr. can be tried for the murder of James Brady. Sorry to say, the answer is most probably no. However, hopefully this will allow for the nut job John W. Hinckley Jr. to forever stay in a mental institution until the day he dies.
As Eugene Volokh writes in the WAPO, “Could the shooter, John Hinckley Jr., be tried for murdering Brady, even though he has already been tried for attempting to kill Brady, and found not guilty by reason of insanity? The answer is no, likely for two different reasons.” He brings up the year-and-a-day rule, Double jeopardy and collateral estoppel. Please read Volokh’s reasoning and the many cited examples of case law.

GOOD GRIEF, COULD THEY JUST LET CASEY KASEM REST IN PEACE …
Casey Kasem, the legendary radio icon, died last month at the age of 82 from Lewy body disease, a common form of progressive dementia. However, that does not seemed to have stopped the ongoing bitter custody battle between Kasem’s children and his widow, Jean Kasem. It is being reported that Casey Kasem’s body is now missing. It is believed the body went missing two days before a judge ordered Jean Kasem to keep the body there for an autopsy. Could these people just let this man rest in peace!!!
Casey Kasem’s body was flown from the funeral home in Tacoma, Washington to a funeral home in Montreal, Canada on July 14, two days before a judge ordered Casey’s widow Jean Kasem to keep the body in Tacoma for an autopsy.
But mysteriously, Casey’s body never arrived.
A representative for Kerri Kasem, Casey’s daughter, has confirmed that her father’s body is missing.
MailOnline has learned that Casey’s body was put on a plane by staff at the Gaffney Funeral Home in Tacoma on July 14 and shipped to Urgel Bourgie Funeral Homes in Montreal. But staff at the Canadian funeral parlor say they have no record for any arrangements for the arrival of Kasem’s body under his name, his birth name Kemal Amen Kasem or his wife Jean’s name.
Family sources told TMZ they believe the radio host’s widow Jean, who has long battled with his three daughters from his first marriage, has taken the body from a funeral home in Tacoma.
But MailOnline confirmed that Casey’s body was shipped by the Gaffney Funeral Home on July 14 to Montreal, two days before a judge ordered her to keep it in Tacoma so that an autopsy could be carried out, at the request of one of Kasem’s daughters, the website reported.
