Religious Extremist Kills Two Gay Men In Seattle: The Hate Crime You Never Heard Of

Now, if you read the headline above, you might assume (thanks to the liberal media narrative) that some Christian killed three gays, because liberals and gay activists like to portray Christians as mean, bigoted, psychos who want nothing else but to eliminate gays.

But the religious extremist in question is not a Christian ( via The Other McCain).
The man accused of killing a New Jersey teenager and three other men as retribution for U.S. military action in the Middle East could eventually be charged with terrorism offenses, according to a national security expert.
William C. Banks, Director of the Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism at Syracuse University, said that if the details of a confession by Ali Muhammad Brown described in court papers filed in Washington state Wednesday are accurate, he could face additional charges at either the state or federal level.
“If he’s got the motivation that he announced he has, which is to exact revenge for the U.S. killing of Muslims in that part of the world, he’s a terrorist,” Banks said. “It’s a matter of motivation.”
Brown, 29, has been in custody at the Essex County Jail in Newark since July 18 on charges related to the murder of Brendan Tevlin, a 19-year-old college student from Livingston who was shot eight times as he drove through West Orange on his way home June 25.
Authorities in Washington have also charged him with a trio of slayings, including the shooting deaths of two gay men in Seattle on June 1, and the death of another man whose body was found on a highway in an unincorporated area outside the city April 27.
McCain pointed to this link, which says that Brown picked up the gay men he killed via a smartphone app.
The bodies of two gay men, 27-year-old Ahmed Said and 23-year-old Dwone Anderson-Young were found in the early morning hours of [June 1] not far from Seattle’s Capitol Hill gayborhood. According to police, they were both executed by Brown no more than 17 minutes after they had picked him up via a social networking app near a popular gay bar in town.
Both victims were shot in the head and police say there was no evidence of a struggle, robbery, exchange of drugs or any other type of crime. Neither of the victims had a criminal history, leading police to believe the crime was motivated exclusively by hate. . . .
Though court documents don’t directly implicate Grindr as the app used by the victims in this case, a friend of Said’s is quoted telling police officers that Said was texting frequently on “an app like Grindr or Jack’d” before his murder.
Brown was arrested July 18. Now, we're just finding out he was investigated back in 2004 for terrorism and he went on his murder spree because of the War on Terror?

Where is Eric "My People" Holder and the Department of Racial Justice investigating this?  Where is the media? You can bet your life if this had "Christian" or "Tea Party" written as a reflection of who the killer allegedly is, it's all you would be hearing about on the news.
Noah Rothman at Hot Air suggests the national media is ignoring Brown’s murder spree precisely because it is Islamic terrorism. Certainly, if these killings had been committed by anyone who could be portrayed as “right-wing,” there would be wall-to-wall coverage on CNN and MSNBC, liberal blogs would be going crazy and President Obama would be welcoming the families of the victims at the White House. But that’s not happening, is it?
The Matthew Sheppard killing had something to teach us. There were many, many reports about that. It was the most infamous single American murder of that decade.
In this case, three gay men were murdered. Three.
Not even a blip on the national news radar screens.
You know what this reminds me of? The “Asian rape gang” phenomenon.
Schoolgirls in England, some as young as 12, were basically being “groomed,” seduced and pimped out by gangs of Islamic men. (In Britain, “Asian” is a term used to describe immigrants or the children of immigrants from Pakistan or wherever, most of whom are Muslim.) These stories made tabloid headlines, but the respectable “mainstream” media was hopelessly gagged by political correctness and the fear of being perceived as racist or “Islamophobic.” However, despite this self-imposed blackout by the respectable press, everyone in England knows what is really happening. The subhuman status assigned to women in Islamic cultures is certainly no secret, yet British feminists were suspiciously mute about the rape gangs.
There is a conspiracy of silence, you see, which includes both gay activists in America and feminists in England, to suppress the brutal truth about Islamic jihad and what it really means. Why is this? Because the gay-rights movement and the feminist movement are both part of the progressive Left, which aims to destroy Western civilization — and Islam is their ally in that regard.

TSA Lied, Now Admitting They Let Illegal Aliens Fly Without ID

Feel safer in the air now (The Lonely Conservative)?
When news first broke that the TSA was allowing illegal immigrants to board commercial airplanes without proper identification the agency denied the allegation and went on the attack against the reporter who brought us the news. As it turns out, it was true and now the TSA is admitting that they allow illegal immigrants to use their “notice to appear” forms as ID, which can be recreated on any word processing program.
A new letter from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) admits that illegal aliens were being allowed to board planes using Notice to Appear forms they received after entering the U.S. illegally. The revelation directly contradicts a TSA statement last month denying such allegations to various media outlets, including Breitbart News. In July Breitbart Texas Managing Director Brandon Darby broke the news that the TSA was letting illegal aliens board planes using Notice to Appear forms; subsequently, a TSA spokesperson publicly attacked Darby on Twitter, insisting that his report was “completely wrong.”
The newly-surfaced TSA letter was penned on August 7, according to the Gateway Pundit. It was reportedly sent from the TSA to Rep. Kenny Marchant (R-TX), a member of the Border Security Caucus. The letter confirms that illegal aliens are being allowed to board planes using a Notice to Appear form (also known as I-862), as Darby revealed in July.
Hector Garza, a spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) told Darby that Notice to Appear forms can “easily be reproduced or manipulated on any home computer. The Notice to Appear form has no photo, anyone can make one and manipulate one. They do not have any security features, no watermark, nothing. They are simply printed on standard copy paper based on the information the illegal alien says is the truth.” (Read More)

Bigoted Harry Reid Thinks Asians Aren't "Smarter Than Everybody Else"

"Dingy" Harry Reid likes throwing the race card against the GOP and others.

But if he really wants to see a racist, maybe he should walk over to the mirror, because as the video below shows, Reid lets the bigotry drip casually from his lips (Rachel Pulaski at Gateway Pundit).

On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid spoke at a Las Vegas Asian Chamber of Commerce meeting. Reid decided this was a great place to try out his new Asian jokes. In the video, Reid tells the Asian audience
“I don’t think you’re smarter than anybody else, but you’ve convinced a lot of us you are,” and before walking off the stage Reid announced, “One problem that I’ve had today is keeping my Wongs straight.”
 This is not the first time Reid has made racist comments. In 2010 he apologized for his racial comments about President Obama and in 2009 Reid was forced to defend his support for African-American politicians in a testy exchange with David Gregory on “Meet the Press” after it was disclosed that he had opposed three other black potential replaces for President-elect Barack Obama.
Not only that, Reid has attacked black Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, as recent as July after the Hobby Lobby decision, when Reid slammed the "five white men" who voted for the decision, even though Thomas was one of the five.

In late 2004, Reid also attacked Justice Thomas, calling him "an embarrassment to the Supreme Court" whose "opinions are poorly written."

Golfing After Speaking About Islamic Savages Beheading James Foley...It Doesn't Get Tackier Than This


That was the attitude Richard Milhous Obama had after his comments made about the vicious beheading of American journalist James Foley by these sixth century Islamosavages called ISIS or ISIL or whatever they're called (NY Daily News).

President Obama put his own spin on the oft-quoted advice of Teddy Roosevelt: Speak sharply and carry a big nine iron. 
The vacationing commander-in-chief, after promising a relentless hunt for the terrorist butchers of a U.S. journalist, teed off on a Martha’s Vineyard golf course just a short time later. 
“Obama is more dedicated to golfing than he is to defending the nation,” sniped Liz Cheney, daughter of the former GOP vice president, via Twitter. 
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius also took a swing at Obama. 
“I know in Western countries, this is vacation period,” he said, according to The Wall Street Journal. “But when people are dying, you must return from vacation.”
It's bad when even the French have to attack the President for being on an endless vacation. Reminds me of that scene from The Naked Gun...

"Not one man will rest until the scum who did this is behind bars. Now let's get a bite to eat."

Speaking of Obama's statement, Bookworm Room makes a great argument for why it was awful.

While I predicted that Obama would express sadness on his own behalf and on behalf of the American people, it turns out that Obama, still a legend in his own mind, felt called upon to speak on behalf of the entire world: 
Today, the entire world is appalled by the brutal murder of Jim Foley by the terrorist group ISIL.[snip]
Jim was taken from us in an act of violence that shocked the conscience of the entire world.[snip]
The world is shaped by people like Jim Foley and the overwhelming majority of humanity who are appalled by those who killed him.
I don’t want to be too pedantic, but I do feel it’s incumbent upon me to point out that large swaths of the Muslim world aren’t appalled at all by “Jim’s” death but are, instead, quite pleased. (And am I the only one who finds bizarre Obama’s faux familiarity with a man he never met, who died with a dignity that at least deserves the respect of his full name?) 
Anywhere that there is radical Islamism and/or anti-Americanism you will find people celebrating the slaughter. Perhaps Obama has forgotten the spectacle of Gazans handing out candy when Americans died on 9/11 or of the 2000 Ramallah lynching that saw Muslims joyfully bathing their hands in the blood of murdered Israelis soldiers:
Ramallah lynching. 
So, no, Mr. President, the entire world is not “appalled,” and a big part of America’s problem lies in the fact that (a) you refuse to recognize that reality and (b) you think you speak for the world. 
As I also predicated, Obama did issue a strongly worded condemnation of the killers, but he combined it with the second part of my prediction, which was his assurance that the killers, despite rejoicing under a name with the word “Islamic” in it, despite dedicating their acts to Allah, and despite self-identifying as Muslim are, in fact, not Muslims at all: 
Let’s be clear about ISIL. They have rampaged across cities and villages killing innocent, unarmed civilians in cowardly acts of violence. They abduct women and children and subject them to torture and rape and slavery. They have murdered Muslims, both Sunni and Shia, by the thousands. They target Christians and religious minorities, driving them from their homes, murdering them when they can, for no other reason than they practice a different religion. 
They declared their ambition to commit genocide against an ancient people. So ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just god would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day. ISIL has no ideology of any value to human beings. Their ideology is bankrupt. (Emphasis added. 
Does Obama actually believe this mush-brained babble? Does he actually think he’s the one who gets to define what constitutes Islam? If it’s good and harmonizes with his hard Left values, it’s Islam; if it’s bad and actually follows the word of the Prophet, and dedicates all acts to its religion, than Obama gets to say it’s not Islam. Obama seems to be aggregating an awful lot of godlike power to himself there.
What has been sickening to me, as an American, is how Obama and his party have been part of the problem for the last 12 years. We had a lot of 30 day patriots after 9/11, whose unity and resolve lasted about as long as the flags on their car antennas. Then, when the Left realized they could make political hay and start exploiting the War on Terror for political gain, they did it. That's not to say criticism of a President during a time of war should be off limits, but to make false allegations we were "lied" to for a war in Iraq, to claim the "war is lost," and to act as an apologist for imprisoned terrorists while attacking our military guarding them was tantamount to treason...all because the Democrat Party was madder about November 2000 than they were about September 11, 2001, and wanted revenge.

Not once has Obama dared to mention the words Islamic terrorism. Instead, it's "workplace violence. The only time Obama speaks of Islam is to defend it, like when he stood in front of the UN and say their "prophet" shall not be mocked, while peddling the lie about a video being the reason for the second 9/11 in 2012.

Maybe this is the only way Obama will wake up about Islamofascism.

Perry Mugshot Sticks It To Dems...Plus, More Proof Indictment Is Sleezy Partisan Politics

Yesterday, Texas Governor Rick Perry gave Texas and national Democrats a proverbial "flipping of the bird."

After speaking to supporters gathered outside, Perry took the following mug shot photo...

Compare that to the corrupt, drunken Democrat for whom Texas Democrats protected by going after Perry, for demanding the lush DA resign or he would veto funding for the Travesty County, TX Public Integrity Unit.

If that wasn't enough, Perry even stopped at Sandy's hamburger stand on Barton Springs Road in Austin for some ice cream (they have some great custard there).

If anything, the way Perry is playing this does more to help than hurt him. Even a writer at the notoriously left-wing Washington ComPost says the indictment could be "a blessing in disguise."

If you needed more proof how much this indictment is Texas sized BS, here's something you didn't know about the group who brought the complaint against Perry (IBD).
Enter George Soros, who holds all those views and whose non-government organizations are behind the funding of Texans for Public Justice via his Open Society Institute, the Sunlight Foundation and indirectly through other groups that hand cash out to causes they believe in.
They've given Texans for Public Justice at least $200,000 to masquerade as a public-spirited, good-government group instead of the pack of partisan hacks that it is.
Here's more. The Houston Comicle reported how members of the grand jury in Travesty County were "offended" by the idea that the Perry indictment was political.

But, according to Media Trackers....
Rho Chalmers, who disclosed to the Houston Chronicle yesterday that she was a member of the grand jury that indicted Texas Gov. Rick Perry, was an active delegate to the Texas Democratic Party convention during grand jury proceedings. Chalmers’ active participation in Democratic state politics is important because she claimed yesterday to the Houston Chronicle that her decision to indict Perry, a Republican, was not based on politics.
“For me, it’s not a political decision,” Chalmers told the newspaper. “That’s what a grand jury is about – take the emotion out of it and look at the facts and make your best decision based on your life experience.”
More troubling, however, is the fact that Chalmers attended, photographed, and commented on an event with Democratic state Sen. Kirk Watson while grand jury proceedings were ongoing.
Watson was a witness in front of the grand jury. On June 27, 2014, Chalmers shared a photo of the Watson event on a community Facebook page she started called Developer’s Dungeon. “Senator Kirk Watson telling the story of the Wendy Davis fillibuster (sic),” she wrote in a comment accompanying the picture.
...Numerous posts from both of Chalmers’ Facebook pages — her personal page, which she shares with her husband, Davis, and her “Developer’s Dungeon” page — make clear that she is a partisan Democratic activist, and that she was an active participant in the Texas Democratic Party’s state convention in June while grand jury proceedings were ongoing.
In one Facebook post on her personal page from June 28, she snapped a selfie showcasing her convention credentials.
Rho Chalmers TDPC Selfie
In a separate post on her “Developer’s Dungeon page,” Chalmers showcased her Texas Democratic Party convention credentials and bragged about her participation on the party’s Rules Committee.
“The Rules Committee was challenging but fun. A little over half a day to resolve everything but we ‘got er done’!” she wrote. She then liked and shared that post using her personal Facebook page, where she noted that she was “pleasantly surprised that I wasn’t completely lost on this committee.”
Rho Chalmers TDPC CredentialsRho Chalmers Rules Committee Pleasantly Surprised
Each of these posts was made while the grand jury was convened and its proceedings were ongoing.
Other Facebook activity from Chalmers also demonstrates her partisan political leanings. Her personal Facebook page shows that Chalmers “likes” the following Facebook groups: University Democrats, Central Austin Democrats, Black Austin Democrats, and South Travis United Democrats.
The University Democrats Facebook page crowed about Perry’s indictment shortly after it was announced.
Never mind that Chalmers and the other jurors broke the judge's orders not to discuss the case.

Yeah, if you believe the grand jury wasn't political, I have ocean front property in Arizona to sell you!

For that fact alone, this phony indictment should be thrown out on jury nullification.

And liberals are hardly the ones who need to lecture on ethics, especially when they defend their own lowlifes in their own party for the sake of "party before anything else."

Liberal MO Gov Nixon Convicts Police Officer In Media Without A Trial

Whatever happened to the concept of "innocent until proven guilty" in America?

The liberal Democrat Governor of Missouri, Jay Nixon, doesn't believe in it, and wants the police officer in the Michael Brown shooting "vigorously prosecuted" without looking at the facts.

Meanwhile, as Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit reported yesterday:
...(T)wo local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store.
Twelve separate eyewitnesses have backed up the police officer's account of events as well.

But this is what happens when you have an angry rob being stirred up by racial agitators like the New Black Panthers and the phony Reverend Al Sharpton, who flew into Ferguson with his bullhorn, and that racist Spike Lee offering conspiracy theories. Nor does it help when the President inserts himself in this matter and sends Eric "My People" Holder down there to seek justice, especially after the activist Holder has turned the Justice Department into the Racial Justice Department.

American Journalist Beheaded By Islamic Savages Called ISIS

Awful news on the beheading of James Foley by the seventh century savages known as ISIS (Legal Insurrection).
Foley had gone missing in northwest Syria in November of 2012, and Sotloff, a reporter for Time, had disappeared in mid-2013, perhaps in Libya. ISIS accompanied the video with a message that:

…U.S. President Barack Obama’s authorization of strikes against the group places the United States “upon a slippery slope towards a new war front against Muslims,” according to BNO.

“Any attempt by you, Obama, to deny Muslims liberty & safety under the Islamic caliphate, will result in the bloodshed of your people,” the ISIS person added.

Foley also speaks in the video, saying: “I call on my friends, family members and loved ones to rise up against my real killers, the U.S. government.”
Meanwhile, liberal Democreeps, especially in Texas, are gleeful because they think they got the head of Gov. Rick Perry.  Obama is sending the racist Attorney General Eric Holder to Missouri tomorrow to get "justice" for the shooting of Michael Brown, who appears (with more coming out) not to be the "gentle giant" he was made out to be.  Conservatives, Republicans, the police, etc, we're all the enemies of the Left and Democrats, but not one of them will ever let the words "radical Islamic terrorism" cross their lips, and refuse to even mention those words.

Anti-American Jerk In Marin County Angry At Neighbor For Flying American Flag

And liberals don't want us to question their patriotism? This is why we do, especially if they live in Moron County, CA (KTVU).
An Army veteran is being criticized for displaying an American flag outside his San Rafael home.

For four decades Dean Morris has hung the flag outside his home. "I lost a great number of friends in the Vietnam conflict and it’s a tribute to them," said Morris.

But Wednesday he received an anonymous letter in the mail criticizing him for flying his flag. The letter contains some harsh language. "Can you please explain why you are flying your flag daily other than the fact you just may be a Republican a**hole," it reads in part.

It also makes a racial comment about President Barack Obama, referring to him as "your black President.”

The letter suggests those who display flags are trying to make a conservative statement, and that the flag should only fly on important holidays Ironically the letter, addressed only to "resident," was posted with a stamp bearing the image of an American flag.

Morris, who served in the Army says flying the flag and sending the letter are all part of free speech. He just finds it strange.

"I don't care if you are a liberal or conservative or whatever. This is not the ranting of person who has all their ducks in order." said Morris.

It's most likely the ranting of some member of the local America-hating, communist group in Marin, who spent the 1960s smoking dope and listening to the Grateful Dead, while calling our military "baby killers" and protesting any war.

If you Moron County liberals hate the country so much, there's an island 90 miles from Miami you could head to.  Just don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Obama-Friendly Special Prosecutor Issues Politically-Motivated Indictment Against Texas Gov. Rick Perry

What happened in Texas tonight (or to be specific, the liberal bastion of Travis County [Austin]) is politically motivated by Democrat political operatives (Legal Insurrection).
A grand jury has handed up an indictment against Gov. Rick Perry in connection with the investigation into an effort to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign. 
At the center of the issue is a complaint about intimidation stemming from Perry’s threat to veto of $7.5 million in state funding to the Public Integrity Unit run by Lehmberg’s office. The threat came after she pleaded guilty to drunk driving and served a 45-day sentence; Perry called on her to step down but she refused to resign her position. Perry then vetoed the funding for the PIU. 
A grand jury was called to determine whether or not Perry broke the law when he threatened to veto the funding. As a result they issued indictments on two felony charges: abuse of official capacity and coercion of public servant. If found guilty on the charges, Perry could be sentenced to a maximum 109 years in prison. 
An indictment indicates the grand jury believes the state has a strong enough case to send to trial and is not a finding of guilt. Special prosecutor Michael McCrum oversaw the presentation to the grand jury who has been meeting on and off this summer and returned the indictment Friday afternoon. 
“The first count of abuse of official capacity. It basically charges that on the day of the veto in 2013 that Governor Perry intentionally or knowingly misused government property that had come into his custody or control,” McCrum said Friday afternoon.
More details and analysis to follow from Amy (in Texas).
UPDATE: Governor Perry’s general counsel has issued the following statement: “The veto in question was made in accordance with the veto authority afforded to every governor under the Texas Constitution.,” Perry’s general counsel, Mary Anne Wiley, said in a statement responding to the indictment. “We will continue to aggressively defend the governor’s lawful and constitutional action, and believe we will ultimately prevail.”
Here is the footage of Rosemary Lehmberg’s booking. According to court records, a blood test taken the night of the arrest showed that Lehmberg’s BAC was .239–almost three times the legal limit for driving.

How wonderful of Texas Democrats, defending an arrogant, abusive drunken DA simply because she has a "D" by her name.

Well, this is purely political, and I hope that Gov. Perry not only has a good legal team that shoots this frivolous case out of the sky, but also launches an investigation into those behind this.  Why do I say this? Let me lay out the details, as I see them.

Who is Michael McCrum, the "special prosecutor" against Gov. Perry? (Dallas Morning News)
Perry’s office has denied the governor did anything improper when he pushed Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign. Intermediaries told Lehmberg that if she didn’t step down after a DWI conviction than Perry would veto $3.7 million annually earmarked for the state’s Public Integrity Unit that is part of her office.

She refused to resign and Perry axed the funding in June.

She is a Democrat and if she resigned her replacement would be named by Perry, a Republican.

The progressive watch-dog group Texans for Public Justice filed a complaint against Perry, contending that he illegally used the weight of his office and the promise of money to attempt to coerce a public official into an action she did not want to take.

When Travis County officials recused themselves from the case, Richardson was selected by the administrative judge for the region to preside over the case. He decided to name McCrum in the role of a special prosecutor to examine the case and determine if charges are warranted.

...In addition to being appointed as an assistant U.S. attorney during the George H.W. Bush Administration, McCrum also was selected by President Obama for one for the four U.S. Attorney posts in Texas. McCrum, after more than nine months of congressional inaction, withdrew his name from consideration.
McCrum was accused of wrongdoing earlier this year by the Bexar County (San Antonio) DAs office of telling a witness who had been subpoenaed to testify in a drunk-driving trial to "get lost for a while."

Keep in mind that Travis County is where former DA Ronnie Earle, a liberal Democrat, used and abused his office to launch politically motivated campaigns against Kay Bailey Hutchinson and former House Majority Leader Tom Delay, whose conviction was overturned back in 2013.

Democrats have had a history of abusing the courts and criminal justice system in political attacks against Republican governors by an effort known as "lawfare."  This is what the liberals used against former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, mount a strategy of frivolous ethics complaints that not only tarnished her name in the media, but also kept her from the job she was elected to do while piling up legal bills.

Isn't it also strange this indictment comes as Perry puts National Guard troops on the Texas/Mexico border in the Rio Grande Valley while Obama golfs and vacations in Martha's Vineyard like he doesn't have a care in the world? What an opportune slap at a governor who is showing up a criminal President who encourages the breaking of our immigration laws by his illegal and unConstitutional executive orders.  You know because of Perry's leadership in fighting Obama's open border, liberals want to make sure he's not a threat in 2016, so the lawfare to smear Perry begins.

Once again, Democrats are showing what corrupt scum they are, and how low they are willing to sink in order to get power.

More video of the drunken Travis County DA. This is the police dash cam of her failed sobriety test.

She was also filmed kicking the cell door

Comedian, Actor Robin Williams Found Dead Of Apparent Suicide At Marin County Home

Sad news tonight for anyone who was entertained by "Mork and Mindy," "Mrs. Doubtfire," "Popeye," or a host of other films and comic appearances he was in (Marin IJ).
Robin Williams, the former College of Marin student who rose to stardom as a comedian and Oscar-winning actor, was found dead Monday at his home in Tiburon.

The cause of death is pending, but the preliminary investigation suggests he died of suicide by asphyxiation, said sheriff's Lt. Keith Boyd, assistant county coroner.

Williams had turned 63 on July 21.

An autopsy was planned for Tuesday.

Authorities received a 911 call at about 11:55 a.m. Monday from Williams' home in unincorporated Tiburon, where he was found unconscious, Boyd said. Williams lived there with his wife, Susan Schneider.

Sheriff's deputies and Tiburon and Southern Marin firefighters responded, and Williams was pronounced dead at 12:02 p.m.

Williams was last seen alive at about 10 p.m. Sunday at his home.

Boyd declined to release additional details as the investigation was continuing.

Williams, who had spoken publicly about his bouts with alcohol and cocaine abuse, had recently checked into a rehab to reinforce his sobriety, according to news reports. He also had a heart valve operation in 2009.

"He has been battling severe depression of late," Williams' publicist, Mara Buxbaum, told the Hollywood Reporter, a newspaper covering the entertainment industry. "This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time."

The newspaper also published a statement from Williams' wife: "This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin's family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin's death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions."

Robin McLaurin Williams was born in Chicago and spent part of his childhood in Michigan until the family moved to Marin. He graduated from Redwood High School in Larkspur in 1969 and attended College of Marin before launching his entertainment career.
Williams appeared on many USO tours overseas performing for our troops. Here is one appearance in Kuwait where those in attendance turned away from Williams during "Retreat," when the flag was being lowered.

But behind the laughs, Williams suffered from depression, and tried off and on to kick drugs and alcohol.  Sometimes the fame, success, whatever it might be in one's life, isn't enough to fill up that hole where something is missing.

If you or someone you know is going through a hard time of life, reach out to someone.  Maybe a professional, maybe a friend, maybe a minister.  Life might not feel worth living now, and no one might appear to care, but I guarantee you someone else will be deeply hurt by a decision to make a permanent solution to a temporary problem.

(VIDEO) Obama in 2008: You Give Me Presidency, My Vacation Time Is Gone

What Richard Milhous Obama said back in 2008....

"You give me this office and in turn my fears, doubts, insecurities, foibles, need for sleep, uuuh family life, vacations, leisure, is gone. I mean, I'm giving myself to you and the American people should have no patience for whatever is going through your head because you have a job to do. And so, How I think about it is you don't make that decision unless you are prepared to make that sacrifice."

James O'Keefe Crosses Border As Osama Bin Laden (As Well As Himself) To Show Border Is Not Secure

Dingy Harry Reid claims the US/Mexico Border is secure, but it is not.

James O'Keefe of Project Veritas (remember the ACORN expose?) shows just how wide open the border at the Texas/Mexico crossing is by crossing as himself and Obama bin Laden.

This area of I-10 in West Texas is so close to the border you can see it from the road.
