    Two days ago, in response to a question from D. A. King, the president of the Dustin Inman Society, former congressman, Libertarian presidential candidate, and current Republican congressional candidate Bob Barr said he would work to pass federal legislation that mandated the use of E-Verify for all employers nationwide. (SNIP) In fact, in 2010 Bob Barr called “E-Verify” big brother-ism. In 2011, Bob Barr also opposed E-Verify. In May of 2013, Bob Barr opposed E-Verify. Hell, last week Bob Barr opposed E-Verify.

    The parents of Trayvon Martin's shooter, George Zimmerman, are suing Roseanne Barr for tweeting their home address in what they say was an attempt to send vigilantes after them. Robert Zimmerman and Gladys Zimmerman's lawsuit says the actress and comedian also said she herself might go to their home herself. They said she posted their private information in violation of Twitter's privacy policies. “Roseanne Barr knew at the time of her tweets and her threat to personally come to the Zimmerman's home that it was an open and obvious call for vigilante justice… intended by Roseanne Barr to cause a...

    SANFORD - The parents of George Zimmerman have sued comedienne Roseanne Barr, saying they fled their Lake Mary home in the middle of the night and have been unable to return because she posted their address on Twitter two years ago. Robert Zimmerman Sr. and Gladys Zimmerman filed suit Monday in state circuit courtm accusing Barr of trying to incite "a lynch mob to descend" and carry out "vigilante justice." According to the suit, Barr published their address on Twitter March 29, 2012, a month after their son, George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager in Sanford but...

    Kentucky Republican U.S. Rep. Andy Barr of Lexington is one of the targets of a new ad campaign from national Democrats who are trying to put incumbent GOP congressmen on the defensive for repeatedly voting to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee launched web ads Tuesday aimed at Republican congressmen in competitive re-election races — including Barr — on the effect their attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act would have on their constituents. The DCCC is also launching a website, FacesOfRepeal.com , in which Kentuckians and other Americans can share their stories of how the...

    Lexington Herald Leader ^ | November 6, 2012 | Jack Brammer
    The second time around proved a winner Tuesday for Republican Andy Barr in wresting Central Kentucky's 6th Congressional District seat from Democratic incumbent Ben Chandler. Barr, a Lexington attorney, lost to Chandler in 2010 by 648 votes but defeated him Tuesday by more than 11,000 votes, thanks in large part to a huge sentiment in the 19-county district against Democratic President Barack Obama. Barr was successful in linking Chandler to Obama, especially on Chandler's support in 2009 for the Obama-backed "cap and trade" bill that angered coal officials by seeking to curb carbon dioxide emissions from coal-powered plants. The measure...

(8:50 in the interview.) And he said holding down the cost of health care overall is the way he believes Medicare can be saved even as it continues to add to the debt.

    FRANKFORT, Ky. — A lawyer for U.S. Rep. Ben Chandler's re-election campaign contends that a coal executive featured in at least three political ads has become a public figure, which negates claims he has been slandered. Louisville attorney John McGarvey responded by letter Tuesday to a claim that the Chandler campaign had slandered River View Coal Vice President Heath Lovell, who supports Chandler's Republican opponent, Andy Barr. Chandler and Barr are engaged in what is expected to be Kentucky's most competitive general election congressional race. Barr, a Lexington attorney, sought a rematch with Chandler after losing a squeaker to him...

Executive Heath Lovell appeared in a Barr ad recently wearing a hardhat and miner's garb. In response, Chandler has been running an ad saying Lovell is not actually a coal miner. Lovell's attorneys sent Chandler a letter today asking that the campaign take down the ad. The letter also included certificates to show Lovell is a certified miner for underground and surface coal operations in the commonwealth. A spokesperson for Chandler did immediately not return...

Suzanne Barr, chief of staff to ICE Director John Morton, said in her resignation letter that the allegations against her are "unfounded." But she said she was stepping down anyway to end distractions within the agency. ICE, a division of the Homeland Security Department, confirmed Barr had resigned.

This problem is far more serious even than ensuring that those responsible for allowing firearms to be sold to violent gangs in Mexico are held accountable. The problem is a complete lack of individual and institutional leadership at ATF; and if this...

But the sniping at the president by Republicans, including former Vice President Cheney, and by conservative radio and TV commentators, borders on — if not passing into — asinine. The criticism has included such childishness as blasting Obama for waiting a few days before making a national speech on the incident. For heaven’s sake, the...

    Former Georgia Rep. Bob Barr said Saturday it’s hard to “overestimate the damage” that’s been inflicted on the Republican Party — not only with this week's defection of Sen. Arlen Specter, but also the “lack of any coherent philosophy, vision or leadership.” “The Republican Party is in very deep trouble right now,” Barr said in an interview with CNN. Barr, who was once a loyal soldier in the GOP, joined the Libertarian Party in 2006 and was the party’s presidential candidate in 2008. The ex-Republican said he doesn’t feel like he relates to Specter's reasons for switching to the Democratic...

    A state security report that's causing an uproar among conservatives has led to an apology from the head of Missouri's Public Safety Department. The 8-page report was produced by the Missouri Information Analysis Center. It was designed to be a training document for law enforcement on how to identify homegrown threats. But considerable backlash from conservatives has prompted an apology from the state. The report, entitled "The Modern Militia Movement," paints right wing groups as a potential domestic security threat. But how those groups are defined is what has caused the uproar.

    It's time to face facts. In-your-face liberalism is about to make a comeback. And this time it will be on steroids. Next year the Democrats will control both houses of Congress, most likely with comfortable, perhaps filibuster-proof majorities. If there is a Democratic president, too, Washington will host one of the most liberal governments in American history. Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid are more than ready to make staggeringly liberal changes in the country's economic, social, and foreign policy. Obama says Washington needs to "invest" tax dollars in alternative energy, infrastructure, health insurance subsidies, and education...

    Jesse Ventura stated at Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty rally in St. Paul, Minnesota, that he would run for president in 2012 if he determined that the grassroots made significant political advances in the interim. It is doubtful he would run for the Libertarian party nod, given that his name alone is bigger than the entire Libertarian party. Ventura could run as an Independent, getting onto all 50 state ballots and possibly winning. This is something that I will be following personally. It looks like the grassroots is already starting to generate momentum for a run in 2012.

    There will be a record number of presidential candidates before the voters on the general election ballot in Florida. Secretary of State Kurt Browning has certified 13 candidates, including U.S. Sen. John McCain and U.S. Sen. Barack Obama, for the Nov. 4 election; with space on the ballot to write-in another. County supervisors of elections are expected to complete their ballots early next week, as they have to be ready to mail overseas by Sept. 20. The ballot also includes perennial candidates James Harris of Florida’s Socialist Workers Party and Ralph Nader, now of the Ecology Party of Florida, along...

    Bob Barr, the Libertarian Party nominee for president, has invited GOP Congressman Ron Paul to be his running mate in the upcoming election. In a letter sent to Paul, Barr called Paul one of the “few American patriots” who exist in today’s society, and asked him to “seriously consider this final offer as an opportunity to show true, lasting leadership beyond party politics.” Barr cited Paul’s 1987 letter to then-GOP Chairman Frank Fahrenkopf, in which Paul stated that, “after years of trying to work through the Republican Party both in and out of government…[Paul] concluded that [his] efforts must be...

    ormer federal prosecutor Bob Barr took a case last year defending sci-fi author and accused child molester Edward Kramer. Now he’s asked the judge to postpone the trial until after the November 4 election. Edward Kramer founded DragonCon, a sci-fi/fantasy and gaming convention held annually in Atlanta. He has been accused of molesting three teenage boys. Numerous delays have violated his constitutional right to a speedy trial, he says. Read the story at the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Thanks to John C. Jackson for calling IPR’s attention to this story. Barr, who in 2007 penned an editorial lamenting support for Genarlow...

    <p>The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.</p>

    Speculation is that that Baldwin and Barr are stepping aside so that Paul can become the nominee of both the Constitution and Libertarian Parties The Montana Constitution Party has removed Chuck Baldwin from the ballot and is putting the ticket of Ron Paul for President and Michael Peroutka on the ballot for Vice-President.

    America is a nation of immigrants, but the process of assimilation has broken down. Although immigration provides economic benefits, it also affects America´s cultural and national identity. Immigration reform must begin with securing the border. Our primary obligation is to protect American citizens. The United States has been enriched by immigrants from around the world. Free immigration remains an attractive ideal, but is impossible with the expensive and expansive nanny state that we´ve created. What long made immigration work so well was America´s famed melting pot—and the absence of any welfare state. People who came to America wanted to become...

    That should be the headline in newspapers around the world this morning. A couple of weeks ago I took off my Vice Presidential hat to act as political commentator and pundit to critique Barack Obama's V.P. choice of Joe Biden. I called it a terrible choice, a bland choice, and strategically, a failure. As a matter of fact, strategically, BOTH parties blew it. If Obama picks Hillary (and her 18 million primary votes) he has a good chance of sitting in the White House. But Joe who? From Dela-where? The guy known for plagiarizing his speeches? After watching last night's...

    Enter Sarah Palin, a lifetime member of the NRA and now the Republican nominee for Vice President. She is well known in conservative circles for her staunch support of gun rights. Certainly selecting her is reassuring to the NRA. While I'm not suggesting that the NRA's endorsement of a Presidential candidate was the only factor in McCain picking Palin, the mere possibility that they might have endorsed Barr very well could be a much bigger factor than the mainstream media and the Republican Party will ever admit. Could it be that he's courting the NRA to make sure that they...

    This amusing story comes from Ballot Access News: Section 192.031 of the Texas election code says that political parties must certify their presidential and vice-presidential candidates for the November ballot no later than 70 days before the general election. It says, “A political party is entitled to have the names of its nominees for president and vice-president placed on the ballot if before 5 p.m. of the 70th day before presidential election day, the party’s state chair signs and delivers to the secretary of state a written certification of the name’s of the party’s nominees for president and vice-president.” This...
