There’s a line from the first Godfather that’s always stuck in my mind. Sollozzo (Al Lettieri), the family’s deadly enemy who has just taken an almost fatal crack at Don Corleone, bends forward and near-whispers, “Could I have gotten to him ten years ago?”
At a time when 25,000 non-U.S. citizens are serving in the U.S. military, some feel it’s time for more police and sheriff departments to do the same. That’s why the Nashville Police Department is joining other departments to push the state legislature to change a law that bars non-citizens from becoming law enforcement officers.Department spokesman Don Aaron said they want immigrants who have been honorably discharged from the military to be eligible for service.“Persons who have given of themselves in the service to this country potentially have much to offer Tennesseans,” he said. “We feel that … would benefit both the country and this city.”Current rules vary across departments.Some, like the Chicago and Hawaii police departments, allow any immigrant with a work authorization from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to become an officer. That means people in the country on temporary visas or are applying for green cards can join.Colorado State Patrol Sgt. Justin Mullins said the department usually struggles to fill trooper positions in less populous corners of the state, including patrol sectors high up in the mountains. He said immigrants from Canada, the Bahamas, the United Kingdom, Mexico and Central America who are willing to live in those remote places have helped the agency fill those vacancies.“People that want to live there and build a family there and work there is a little more difficult to find,” Mullins said. “People moving from out of state, or out of the country, if they’re willing to work in these areas, then that’s great for us.”Other agencies, like the Cincinnati Police Department and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, require that officers at least have a pending citizenship application on file with the federal government. And others, like the Burlington, Vt., and Boulder, Colo., police departments, require that officers be legal permanent residents, or green-card holders.

Officials protested that some of the name changes proposed by Native Americans -- like Sáykiptatpa and Nikéemex -- were too hard to pronounce, prompting the tribes to create an interactive pronunciation guide.

I noted the injuries that Reid suffered on New Year’s Day, in Las Vegas: multiple broken bones around his right eye, damage to the right eye, severe facial bruising, broken ribs, and a concussion. Was all of this really the result of losing his balance because an elastic exercise band broke? That seems unlikely, to say the least.

Blacks Get Pilloried for Speaking Truth about Ferguson
by DEROY MURDOCK March 25, 2015
The Left slams the Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart.
Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart stopped toeing the liberal policy line for just a moment. That was long enough for the Left to denounce this black man as a race traitor.
“Sellout,” carping online critics called him. “House Negro,” snarled others.
Capehart’s crime? In a March 16 op-ed headlined ‘“Hands up, don’t shoot’ was built on a lie,” he explained that he wrongly advanced the narrative that exploded after the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old cigar thief, at the hands of former Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson. Capehart cited the Department of Justice’s final report on Ferguson. DOJ says that eyewitnesses that day
all establish that Brown was moving toward Wilson when Wilson shot him. Although some witnesses state that Brown held his hands up at shoulder level with his palms facing outward for a brief moment, these same witnesses describe Brown then dropping his hands and “charging” at Wilson.
For this, Capehart got slammed on Facebook and elsewhere online. As he explained, some “said I did it because I wanted ‘white people to like me’ or that I ‘did it for the money.’ No, I didn’t. I did it because it was the right thing to do.”

Zimmerman unloads righteously on Obama
By Jack Cashill On 03/25/2015 In Commentary,Opinion
BOYS IN THE HOODIES
Zimmerman was able to do the interview only because the Department of Justice finally cleared him of civil rights charges in the February 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
This clearance came three indefensible years after the shooting and nearly two years after a Florida state jury acquitted him of murder.
Before the shooting, it should be noted, the “white Hispanic” Zimmerman was an Obama supporter and a civil rights activist. He is certainly no longer the former. As to the latter, it is his own civil rights that he is working to protect.
When his attorney asked who it is he blamed for “the highest level of unfairness” in his case, Zimmerman replied, “By far, the president of the United States – Barack Hussein Obama.” The media bristled at the mention of Obama’s middle name.
Given the president’s authority, Zimmerman assumed he would do “his absolute [best] to not inflame racial tensions in America.” That is not what happened.
Instead, four weeks after the shooting, Obama used his bully pulpit to weigh in on behalf of Martin and his family.
As Zimmerman suggested, the appropriate step for Obama would have been to defend the Sanford Police Department and to demand an end to the media lynching of George Zimmerman.
As an African-American, Obama had more latitude to do this than a white politician would have. He chose not to. Said Obama for the ages: “But my main message is to the parents of Trayvon – if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon.”
Said Zimmerman of those remarks, “To me that was clearly a dereliction of duty pitting Americans against each other solely based on race.”

Nick Romeo - TWO-EDGED SWORD
by KEVIN D. WILLIAMSON March 22, 2015
There can be no free society without trust.
‘Can I trust what the president says? That’s a yes-or-no question.” So inquired U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen in response to having been lied to by the Obama administration. The administration wants to use a presidential decree to enact an amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants; half of the states have rallied behind Texas in arguing that this is unconstitutional, that the president is arrogating to himself a legislative power that is properly Congress’s. Lawyers for the Justice Department, led by Kathleen Hartnett, assured the court that no action on DAPA — Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents — would be taken until Judge Hanen had made a ruling on whether to issue an injunction against it.
“Like an idiot, I believed that,” the judge says.
The Obama administration, being what it is, ignored its promise to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas and began handing out reprieves as fast as it could, issuing more than 100,000 of them. When the annoyed judge demanded to know why the Department of Justice had lied to a federal court, Hartnett argued that the reprieves were being handed out under a different set of guidelines. The judge was not buying it. Among other things, the administration is offering three-year grants of immunity, which are not authorized by the earlier authority under which it purports to be operating.

Khamenei calls 'Death to America' as Kerry hails progress on nuke deal | The Times of Israel
Day after Obama urges Iran to seize ‘historic opportunity,’ supreme leader says US seeks to create insecurity
Iran’s Supreme leader Ali Khamenei called for “Death to America” on Saturday, a day after President Barack Obama appealed to Iran to seize a “historic opportunity” for a nuclear deal and a better future, and as US Secretary of State John Kerry claimed substantial progress toward an accord.
Khamenei told a crowd in Tehran that Iran would not capitulate to Western demands. When the crowd started shouting, “Death to America,” the ayatollah responded: “Of course yes, death to America, because America is the original source of this pressure.
“They insist on putting pressure on our dear people’s economy,” he said, referring to economic sanctions aimed at halting Iran’s nuclear program. “What is their goal? Their goal is to put the people against the system,” he said. “The politics of America is to create insecurity,” he added, referring both to US pressure on Iran and elsewhere in the region.
Khamenei’s comments contrasted with those of Iranian President Hassan Rohani, who said “achieving a deal is possible” by the March 31 target date for a preliminary accord.
