And Again: Another Lumber Business Was Shaken Down for $55 Million by Eric Holder’s Justice Department [rdbrewer]

Bob McManus: Tantrum-throwing babies are in charge of New York
"'I am the government,' Cuomo once announced.... For the mayor, there are no plain-vanilla policies. They are all 'transcendent!' That is, when they are not 'transformative!' Or 'profound!' Or 'momentous!'" Maybe we should elect politicians without personality disorders, huh? [rdbrewer]

New York Observer: Fed Up With Govt Misconduct, Federal Judge Takes Nuclear Option
"The entire original prosecution against Sierra Pacific appears to have been driven by the Department of Justice’s interest in hitting a 'deep pocket' for millions of dollars of revenue." Holder is running the DOJ like a plaintiff's law firm. Via @ComradeArthur. [rdbrewer]

Ajit Pai: The government wants to study ‘social pollution’ on Twitter
"If you take to Twitter to express your views on a hot-button issue, does the government have an interest in deciding whether you are spreading 'misinformation'? If you tweet your support for a candidate in the November elections, should taxpayer money be used to monitor your speech and evaluate your 'partisanship'?" More from The Hill. [rdbrewer]

Valles Marineris
Times Dispatch: Police investigating Graham's disappearance find apparent human remains [rdbrewer]

Vulture: Peter Weller on Sons of Anarchy’s Final Days, the Cult of Buckaroo Banzai, and His Ph.D.
From last month. He got his Ph.D. Fitting, because he's the best lecturer on TV. And now, how about that sequel? Added: Kevin Smith on Buckaroo Banzai. Talks to Weller and Lithgow. Also: 1984 review by Siskel & Ebert. Siskel called it: "It could achieve cult status." [rdbrewer]

EBOLA CZAR PREDICTED in 2001 commercial.
It even looks like Klain. [rdbrewer]
Boko Haram, Nigeria Agree on Cease-Fire; the 200 Kidnapped Girls Are Supposedly to be Released
But as some African tweeters note, those 200 girls were only the latest of Boko Haram's many child-kidnap victims
So This Is Happening [@drewmtips]
New Patient "Screens" Positive for Potential Ebola Infection at Baylor Hospital; Awaiting Test Results
Dear Lord, he's been transferred to Dallas Health Presbyterian. That hospital does not seem ready for this, and furthermore, on a human level, they need a break. "Screening" positive only means that he fits the parameters of ebola infection based on symptoms and verbal answers to questions (like, I suppose, "Have you visited West Africa?"). We do not know yet if he has ebola or some other virus.
Two Iranian Guards, One Pakistan Military Officer Dead in Border Skirmish
Apparently there's some friskiness on the Iran/Pakistan border
Polish Pimps Now Branding Their "Property" With Tattoos, Declaring the Prostitutes' Owners in Very Large Letters
The pimps deny this marks "ownership" of a human slave, and insist instead that the women were given the large tattoos to "reward" them for their "loyalty"
Time: Clinton Aides Faulted for Strong-Arming State Investigations
"In the second case, department managers were found to have interfered in the investigation into a Regional Security Officer accused of sexual misconduct and harassment." Via @Lachlan. [rdbrewer]

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart: Eric Holder's Top Deputy Resigns Amid Revelation Fast and Furious Guns Used in Phoenix Crime
"Sen. Grassley and Chairman Issa... revealed the finding in a Thursday letter to Deputy Attorney General James Cole, the number two highest-ranking official at the Department of Justice who announced his plans to resign the DOJ shortly thereafter...." Thanks to Monty. [rdbrewer]

Bill Whittle, Truth Revolt: Fear of Ebola
Video. More at [rdbrewer]

Dem operative to be Ebola czar
Isn't that reassuring? Maybe he'll appoint a president czar while he's at it. Added: More from The Federalist. [rdbrewer]

Patrick Howley: MoveOn.Org Changes Its Contest Rules After Conservative Group’s Video Takes Commanding Lead
"American Commitment... submitted a video highlighting progressive donor and climate change alarmist Tom Steyer’s role in the 2014 election cycle." [rdbrewer]

ArsTechnica: FBI director to citizens: Let us spy on you
How about NO? The reasoning always goes like this: "We have to spy because child molesters." Get a search warrant and knock yourselves out. And "We run the risk of being in the dark." Reading that, one might think the FBI was unable to investigate anything until the advent of smart phones and texting. Regardless, get a search warrant. The Fourth Amendment is there for a reason. [rdbrewer]

New York Times Cocoon, Verified!
"A man named Tyler Pearson had posted a list of the 1000 Twittter accounts most commonly followed by the 677 New York Times staffers on the paper’s public list. It is, as you would expect, embarrassingly cocooned...." [rdbrewer]

Spiked: #GamerGate: an un‑PC rebellion
"Some very strange political alliances are forming. I’ve seen self-described socialists and communists write impassioned comments of gratitude beneath pro-gamer articles on right-wing news site Breitbart. I’ve seen trans activists join forces with right-wing commentators to stick it to the activists of the authoritarian left...." [rdbrewer]

$39,643,352 Worth of NIH Funding That Could Have Gone to the Ebola Vaccine
"Millions went to develop 'origami condoms,' in male, female, and anal versions." [rdbrewer]
