The federal is stealing private property for a breeding habitat for a frog not seen in 50 years.
This makes perfect sense. SNARK.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) is seeking to protect the dusky gopher frog on the Endangered Species List by designating over 1,500 acres of private property in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana as a “critical habitat” for the embattled amphibian.
But here’s the kicker: The frog hasn’t been seen on the land in question for over 50 years.
The federal government has the ability through the Endangered Species Act (ESA) to designate land as “critical habitat” subjecting it to additional regulations. But the government can’t simply claim that private property is “critical habitat” without first conducting an economic analysis to determine the economic impact. If the analysis shows that the cost of creating a critical habitat burdens…

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — An investigation has begun after the death of a drugged, emotionally disturbed man restrained by NYPD officers near St. Patrick’s Cathedral was ruled a homicide on Friday.
Authorities said 45-year-old Ronald Singleton was high on PCP, sitting in a cab in Midtown, cursing and screaming when the cab driver flagged down police who put Singleton in a “protective body wrap” in order to be transported to a hospital, 1010 WINS’ Roger Stern reported.

Singleton, who was not under arrest, went into cardiac arrest in the ambulance and was pronounced dead at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center.
The New York City Medical Examiner’s office has ruled Singleton’s death a homicide caused by his being restrained by police while in a delirious state caused by PCP. The Medical Examiner said Singleton’s “exciting delirium”…

FBI never directly mentions threat of Islamic extremism in America
by KIT DANIELS | INFOWARS.COM | AUGUST 29, 2014
The FBI’s latest national threat assessment lists so-called sovereign citizens and the militia as threats to “U.S. internal security” while completely omitting Islamic terrorists.
The Aug. 14 National Threat Assessment for Domestic Extremism, which was obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, claims that militia members and sovereign citizens are among those “aspired” to carry out violent attacks, yet it only indirectly mentions Islamic terrorism in a footnote describing “other” types of “domestic extremism” not included in the report.
“Of a sample of 50 credible violent threat intelligence reports analyzed for this assessment, nearly 60 percent expressed lethal violence as an ultimate goal,” the report asserts.
The report reads like a spiritual successor to previous publications by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which routinely demonized Constitutionalists and other libertarians by grouping them…

It had seemed to the four clean-cut college freshman that night like a typical McDonald’s: spanking clean, well-lighted, and safe. It was in a good neighborhood too, right next to Texas A&M University in College Station – a campus known for its friendly atmosphere and official down-home greeting: “howdy”
Out on a double date, the two couples pulled into the parking lot of so-called “University McDonald’s” shortly after 2 a.m. that Sunday – and beheld a scene unlike anything portrayed in all those wholesome McDonald’s…

NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Some parents of Newark schoolchildren say they plan to boycott the city school district when classes begin next week.
They will announce details of their plans at a news conference Wednesday.
The parents are upset about problems that they say have persisted in New Jersey’s largest school district since the state took it over nearly 20 years ago.
The most recent anger was set off by problems with a new One Newark enrollment system last week that has families rank their preferences for public or private schools across the city rather than just attend the nearest school.
But highly sought-after schools filled up quickly. In some cases, like for McLean, only one child got assigned to a school while two others are waiting to be placed.
“If they pick three different schools for them, I have to do three drop-offs and try to make it to…
