Eric Garner chokehold case given over to new investigating team at Justice Department

Source: NY Daily News

Federal prosecutors and FBI agents in New York have ceded control of the civil rights probe of Eric Garner's chokehold death to a new investigative team based in the Justice Department.

Sources said that since the Eastern District of New York crew had recommended that NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo's actions did not rise to the level of a federal crime it was not possible for the Brooklyn-based agents to see the case through to the end.

Civil rights officials in Washington, disagreed with the recommendation, leading to a highly unusual split in the investigation that has dragged on for more than two years, sources said.

"I wouldn't use the word 'replaced' to describe what happened," to the New York prosecutors and agents, said a law enforcement source familiar with the investigation. "You could say they didn't want to go forward."....

The decision whether to seek a federal indictment will ultimately be made by the Justice Department's civil rights division and Attorney General Loretta Lynch. There had been a prosecutor from the Washington civil rights office working with the Eastern District prosecutors on the case in Brooklyn.

Evidence in the Staten Island death was presented to a grand jury earlier this year, but the panel has yet to vote on it.

Hillary Clinton is matching Barack Obama with young voters

Source: Vox

...Clinton is now projected to get exactly the same youth vote share as Obama did in 2012 (60 percent), according to a massive new study released Monday by the Black Youth Project at the University of Chicago, as part of its GenForward survey series. It’s a stunning turnaround for a campaign that has faced months of fierce criticism and second-guessing over its apparent inability to shore up its millennial support.

“Over time, young voters have really come to think that Gary Johnson doesn’t represent their interests, that Jill Stein is not going to win, and that the stakes are very high in this election,” says Cathy Cohen, a political scientist at the University of Chicago and the study’s lead author, in an interview. “And while they still don’t have great love for Clinton, it looks like they’ve decided to vote for her.”

The race has since widened considerably — Clinton is now out to a 45-to-39 lead in the RealClearPolitics polling average. So it’s not surprising that she’s improved her numbers with young voters as part of that bigger shift.

Still, there’s very strong evidence that her support with millennials has increased at a much faster clip than it has with the rest of the voting public — particularly in the wake of the presidential debates.

Genius Trump supporter not voting because election is rigged

Seriously. MSNBC had video of him this morning. Signs all over the yard but he bought what Trump's selling. Not voting top of ticket or down ticket. Not. Voting.

Thanks, Trump!

Somber Republicans in sack cloth and ashes on my TV this morning

They wonder if this primary voter problem they have is treatable or terminal. How clueless. It took decades for their base to deteriorate like this.

Look to their shock jocks and Fox who taught them to hate the government. They taught them to blame others for all their problems. From the poor to African Americans to Immigrants to Mexicans to Muslims to Women -All are blamed for taking a piece of their fantasy ownership of Everything American.

The whole idea of a "rigged" election places blame for failure on Others.

Remember that quaint concept of "personal responsibility"? Gone. They used to sneer about how the unsuccessful should pull themselves up by their bootstraps.

I think we need two parties. I worry about what happens when the gop fractures. But I can't find any pity in my heart for them.

They aren't even really trying now-

So Donald Trump Just Invited a Hamas Supporter to the Debate Tomorrow Night

Donald Trump has reportedly invited President Obama’s estranged half-brother to the debate tomorrow.
Malik Obama is a supporter of Hamas, by the way. Above is a photo of Malik Obama at a 2010 conference in Yemen, wearing a Hamas scarf with the slogans, “Jerusalem is ours - we are coming,” and “From the river to the sea.”

In 2010 when this photo surfaced, right wing media tried their best to smear Obama with his half-brother’s endorsement of Hamas, ignoring the fact that Malik had openly declared his enmity with Barack.

70 Nobel Laureates Endorse Hillary Clinton

Source: Daily Beast

In an open letter released Tuesday and addressed to the American people, 70 Nobel laureates “strongly and fully” endorsed Hillary Clinton for the presidency. “To preserve our freedoms, protect our constitutional government, safeguard our national security, and ensure that all members of our nation will be able to work together for a better future,” the letter began, “it is imperative that Hillary Clinton be elected as the next President of the United States.” The Nobel recipients in economics, physics, chemistry, and medicine suggested that the next president must be someone displaying “vigorous support for science and technology” and someone with the intent to promote innovation with “sensible immigration and education policies” to bolster the scientific workforce. Among the signatories were this year’s economics prize recipient Oliver Hart, and this year’s chemistry prize winner J. Fraser Stoddart.
