Senate probes possible US gov't ties
to anti-Netanyahu effort, source says

US SENATE COMMITTEE probes an American nonprofit's funding of efforts to oust Israeli's Benjamin Netanyahu after Obama administration's State Department gave nonprofit taxpayer-funded grants, source with knowledge of the panel's activities says. 

 A powerful U.S. Senate investigatory committee has launched a bipartisan probe into an American nonprofit’s funding of efforts to oust Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after the Obama administration’s State Department gave the nonprofit taxpayer-funded grants, a source with knowledge of the panel's activities told

The fact that both Democratic and Republican sides of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations have signed off on the probe could be seen as a rebuke to President Obama, who has had a well-documented adversarial relationship with the Israeli leader. 

   The development comes as Netanyahu told Israel’s Channel Two television station this week that there were “governments” that wanted to help with the “Just Not Bibi” campaigning -- Bibi being the Israeli leader’s nickname.

Two Officers Shot During Protest Near Ferguson Police Department   By Shamar Walters, Alexander Smith, Jason Cumming and Richie Duchon

Two police officers suffered "very serious" wounds after being shot early Thursday during a demonstration in Ferguson, Missouri, authorities said.

Gunfire rang out as about 50 protesters and about 30 police officers remained outside the Ferguson Police Department shortly after midnight local time (1 a.m. ET) at a dwindling rally following the resignation of the embattled force's chief.
St. Louis County Police Chief John Belmar said that it appeared that at least three shots were "directed exactly at" the officers.

2 officers shot in tonight. One officer from St Louis County. One officer from Webster Groves.

Attorney General Eric Holder said last week that the police had fostered a "highly toxic environment" of racism and misconduct that turned the city into a "powder keg."

what is happening to our country when you can't display our AMERICAN FLAG ?? This judge should be tossed out of office

Virginia Sheriff Furious After Judges Tell Him He Can't Erect US Flag Display

Portsmouth Sheriff Bill Watson was furious after he was ordered by a local judge to take down a US flag-styled display on the lobby wall of the local courthouse.
The American flag display was a gift from members of the Portsmouth Fire Department and featured a fire hose coiled into a picture display and painted like Old Glory. A sign beneath it read, “A Tribute to Public Safety.”
The court demanded that the display be removed from public property but the Sheriff was incensed at the decision.
  Watson said he requested to have it mounted on the wall in the lobby of the courthouse but was shocked by what he was told.
Watson said he was told, “Not only do we not want it on the wall, we don’t want it in the courthouse.”
Watson said, “I just can’t believe that they don’t want to display the American flag in a courthouse, I mean that’s the most asinine thing I’ve ever heard in my life.”
NewsChannel 3 spoke with a judge who didn’t want to be identified about the issue. The judge told us it was decided that the lobby of the courthouse is not the appropriate place for the display.
He said they don’t want any display or memorial of it’s kind positioned in the lobby when people walk into the courthouse.
The judge said if you allow one type of display, then you will have to allow all types.
Sheriff Watson said, “They expect my deputies to put their life on the line for a judge. If somebody was going to come into a courtroom with a gun, the deputy is supposed to stand in front of the judge and take a bullet, but yet they won’t let us have our flag, saluting public safety? To me, that’s a slap in the face.”
