The Columbus, Indiana newspaper The Republic reports:

Federal prosecutors announced Monday 21-year-old Derrick Dawon Burns is accused of making the threats on October 10, 2012, October 15, 2012, December 6, 2012, and October 1, 2013.

The charges were filed in the southern district of Illinois. However, Burns appeared Monday in a Chicago federal court, where he was ordered held without bond pending a Wednesday detention hearing.

U.S. Attorney Stephen Wigginton didn’t reveal a motive for the threats, nor what led to Burns’ arrest.

It will be interesting to see what exactly prompted the arrest if the threats occurred more than a year ago.

WTF: Woman rescued from a chimney in California [photos]!/HuntingBigfoot/status/523931710489387008

Well, maybe we’re making up the part about the sleigh and reindeer, but the part about woman stuck in a chimney did happen today in Southern California:

— KTLA (@KTLA) October 19, 2014

More from KTLA:

Deputies responded to a home in the 1900 block of Woodside Drive at 5:45 a.m. after a caller reported that the woman had been stuck in the chimney, about 8 feet from the top, for two hours, said Capt. Renee Ferguson of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department.

The county Fire Department’s urban search and rescue team was called to the scene. Photos posted on Twitter by the VCFD showed firefighters on the roof of the house as they worked to reach the woman, who was conscious during the rescue.

And the woman is currently under arrest for “illegal entry and giving false information to law enforcement officers”:

Dallas sheriff's deputies upset about being ordered inside Ebola patient's apartment without protective gear

— Kevin Krause (@KevinRKrause) October 3, 2014

From the linked article:

Five Dallas County sheriff’s deputies who were ordered Wednesday to go inside the Dallas apartment where an Ebola patient stayed are now worried about their health.

And the sheriff’s association that represents them is not happy about the department’s lack of preparations and precautions before sending them.

Sgt. Chris Dyer, president of the association, said a lieutenant, sergeant and three deputies went inside the apartment to serve the containment warrant that asked the occupants not to leave. The deputies accompanied the county’s health director, Zachary Thompson, and its medical director, Christopher Perkins, to the apartment, Dyer said.

The deputies were not wearing any protective gear, not even latex gloves, Dyer said.

[Emphasis added.]

What. The. Hell.

Yes, Michael Monning/Monnig was apparently one of those deputies.

Sgt. Monnig and the other deputies were not wearing any type of protective gear when they accompanied county health officials into the apartment late Wednesday to issue an order to the people inside, forbidding them from leaving the apartment.

Sgt. Monnig says they were assured by health officials that no one inside the apartment was showing symptoms of Ebola and that the danger was remote.

Police say Mo. Sen. Jamilah Nasheed was carrying 9mm, refused breathalyzer!/JeromeEHudson/status/524674836002770944

As Twitchy reported, Ferguson, Mo., was relatively quiet Monday night, but police did arrest state senator Jamilah Nasheed and one other protester who in a Vine were shown blocking traffic by kneeling in the middle of a road and performing the “hands up, don’t shoot” pose.

CBS St. Louis today reports that Nasheed refused to take a breathalyzer test, and also that the senator had a gun on her at the time of arrest.

Just a reminder: attorney Eric Vickers is Nasheed’s chief-of-staff and was organizer of the Sept. 10 demonstration that had protesters flood I-70 to disrupt traffic.

Nasheed may have a permit for concealed carry, but to many the gun wasn’t a good look, since she’s also known for pushing anti-gun legislation.

‘Perfect Hardball clip’: Chris Matthews not great at finding Jewish expertise [video]!/RCannon74/status/524560184795217920

On last night’s “Hardball,” Chris Matthews hosted a discussion on the Metropolitan Opera’s highly controversial production of “The Death of Klinghoffer,” based on the murder of a Jewish man by PLO terrorists. The opera has provoked a lot of anger, including from members of the Jewish community. So, naturally, Matthews turned to the Jewish expert on the panel:

How Israel risks turning into ISIS. Wait, what?!/amenadiel/status/507130475056750592

It’s one thing to see an anti-Israel tweet like the one above that attempts to compare Israel to ISIS and quite another to see the same nonsense in a major Israeli newspaper Stay classy, Haaretz:!/haaretzcom/status/507068176069169153

An excerpt:

Netanyahu’s Jewish state must stop itself from becoming like ISIS

True, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Jewish state is not identical to the Islamic State (formerly the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria), but there is a connection between them, and it has concrete effects. It may be possible to form a regional alliance against messianic racism, but an Israel that moves away from Einstein, metaphorically and in practice, and imprisons itself in a racist educational ghetto sacrifices not only its children’s souls but also the ability to be an influential player in the region. A player that, were it not for its enslavement to racism and the occupation, could have been a partner to the creation of new regional borders, playing a stabilizing role against the extremists.

Not identical puts it mildly. And does anybody actually believe what’s in this op-ed?
