    Over the past year, both before and since the elections, there have been a number of court cases challenging Barack Hussein Obama’s eligibility. Most of the cases have been dismissed by judges for reasons that are not truly legitimate, but many feel they were dismissed to avoid the political ramifications. Just last week I wrote about a case that was filed in Florida, that not only challenged Obama’s eligibility, but stated that he was a direct threat to the safety and security of the United States. That case has yet to be heard. Yet another case filed in Alabama may...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Some of the best Republican arguments against President Barack Obama's proposals to avoid a "fiscal cliff" come from the president himself, in comments he made months or years before his re-election. Stung by the GOP's midterm election gains in 2010, Obama took stands that differ from his current positions on raising tax rates, adjusting Social Security and other topics now dominating Washington as a Dec. 31 deadline nears.

    They’re only about 10% of the rebel forces attempting to dislodge that noted reformer Bashar al-Assad, CNN’s Nick Paton Walsh reports, but Jabhat al-Nusra is the most effective and powerful part of the insurrection against the Iranian-backed dictator. The only problem for the US is that they’re closely affiliated with al-Qaeda in Iraq, which has been attempting to overthrow the democratically-elected government in Baghdad, too. If this is starting to sound familiar, just think …. Libya: The Christian Science Monitor has more background on the “foreign terrorist organization” that’s staffed by veterans of some old, familiar places: The speed with...
  • The Impossibility of Rapid Energy Transitions

    The American ^ | December 6, 2012 | Kenneth P. Green
    Understanding energy system inertia and momentum is key to judging whether a rapid transition toward any type of energy is feasible. I am tonight setting a clear goal for the energy policy of the United States. Beginning this moment, this Nation will never use more foreign oil than we did in 1977 — never. From now on, every new addition to our demand for energy will be met from our own production and our own conservation. The generation-long growth in our dependence on foreign oil will be stopped dead in its tracks right now and then reversed as we move...
  • New Army Manual Orders Soldiers Not To Criticize Taliban

    Here is a strong indicator that the Obama Administration’s crusade to appease Islam has gone too far; a new U.S. military handbook for troops deployed to the Middle East orders soldiers not to make derogatory comments about the Taliban or criticize pedophilia, among other outrageous things. It gets better; the new manual, which is around 75 pages, suggests that Western ignorance of Afghan culture— not Taliban infiltration—is responsible for the increase in deadly attacks by Afghan soldiers against the coalition forces. The soon-to-be-released Army handbook is still being drafted, but a mainstream newspaper got a sneak preview and published an...

    By federal law, the Obama-Biden campaign is supposed to disband. But it shows no signs of disbanding, and is instead launching a whole new campaign. In an email sent out today and signed by Obama campaign deputy manager Stephanie Cutter, Obama-Biden is urging supporters to flood the capitol switchboard in Washington with calls to Republican congressman. Callers are urged to pressure GOPers into caving to the president’s demand for higher taxes. Cutter casts the debate disingenuously, as the president defending tax cuts for the middle class while Republicans would be making a “conscious choice” to hike those taxes in defense...

    So I work a job at night that's very repetitive, and I'm allowed to listen to music. I've found though i don't have the time for reading that I used to, and that I'd rather spend my time listening to audiobooks while working, then music to help keep my mind from dying a slow death from disuse. Which leads me here, what better group of people to come to for help finding books that will further my knowledge of both fiction and non-fiction, then everyone at Free Republic? I'm looking for any good non-fiction audiobooks on history, science, philosophy, medicine,...
  • Gary Mauser: Why the long-gun registry doesn’t work — and never did

    National Post ^ | Dec 11, 2012 | Gary Mauser
    In March, Stephen Harper’s government reversed decades of increasing restrictions on civilian firearms, scrapping the controversial long-gun registry on grounds that it was wasteful and ineffective. Gun laws, the prime minister correctly said, should focus on criminals rather than law-abiding citizens such as farmers and hunters. Some claim that this Conservative policy flies in the face of a mountain of evidence, and even represents an assault against reason. Canadian voters seem divided on this issue, as well as some basic related questions: Are firearms in the hands of ordinary citizens a serious threat to public safety? Is registration an effective...

    CBS DC ^ | December11, 2012
    House Speaker John Boehner accused President Barack Obama on Tuesday of slow-walking negotiations to avoid the “fiscal cliff,” and urged him to name specific cuts in government spending he would support as part of any compromise. “Let’s be honest. We’re broke. The plan we offered is consistent with the president’s call for a balanced approach,” said the Ohio Republican. “We’re still waiting for the White House” to do the same.” “Longer the White House slow walks this process, the closer we are” to going over the fiscal cliff, Boehner said. The White House and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi disputed...

    SPRINGFIELD-In a huge win for gun-rights groups, a federal appeals court in Chicago Tuesday tossed the state's ban on carrying concealed weapons and gave Illinois' Legislature 180 days to craft a law legalizing concealed carry. "The debate is over. We won. And there will be a statewide carry law in 2013," said Todd Vandermyde, a lobbyist for the National Rifle Association. In a split opinion (see below), the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court ruling in two cases downstate that upheld the state's longstanding prohibition against carrying concealed weapons. Illinois is the only state with an...

    A Boston Public Schools teacher’s aide will spend at least the next year behind bars after pleading guilty today to charges he molested two special needs students. LaShawn Hill, 34, of Dorchester, pleaded guilty to charges of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14, lewd and lascivious behavior and unnatural lascivious acts with a child. Hill was arrested last December after a teacher found him and a 14-year-old autistic boy with their pants unzipped in a room at the Harbor Pilot School, said prosecutor Alissa Goldhaber. After Hill’s arrest, an April 2011 incident involving a 7-year-old special needs...

    New CNN programming chief Jeff Zucker will reportedly replace Soledad O'Brien, the host of the network's morning show "Starting Point," with Erin Burnett, who currently hosts "Outfront," which airs at 7 p.m. on the struggling cable news network. The New York Post reported that Zucker is “looking at Erin Burnett to revive the cabler’s moribund morning ratings” and quotes a CNN source who said Zucker will team Burnett “up with a guy, and they’ll go after the audience watching ‘Today’ and ‘Good Morning America.’" O'Brien recently told a college audience that when she first heard of Zucker's hire, she thought,...
