  • Action Alert: Tell Governor Brewer To Sign SB1182 (Anti NDAA Bill)

    Flag Liberty Blog ^ | 21 April, 2012 | Elisha Dorfsmith
    As many of my readers know, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is the biggest violation of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights since the Patriot Act! The Arizona house and senate have just passed a bill (SB1182) that says Arizona will NOT enforce this unconstitutional law. The bill is now being sent to Governor Brewer. Please call and write Governor Brewer and ask her to sign SB1182! We need to do everything we can to keep the NDAA from being enforced in Arizona. You can contact Brewer here: http://azgovernor.gov/contact.asp More info on this bill here: http://azdailysun.com/news/local/state-and-regional/lawmakers-push-bills-superseding-fed-laws/article_9b043884-cf76-51dd-990f-11d48347b817.html

    actupol ^ | February 23, 2012 | none stated
    Marine Le Pen did not win her case. Indeed, the FN leader and candidate for the French presidency was dismissed by the French Constitutional Court where she demanded the “parrainages” (supports) anonymity of mayors for the candidates. As justification, it was considered the current system – the publicity of the supports – was perfectly in conformity with the Constitution of the Fifth Republic and it was impossible to change the rules just sixty days before the election anyway. Will Marine Le Pen obtain her 500 supports? This is the question currently asked by some political analysts and scholars and by...

    Everyone deals with trauma in different ways. Getting violently attacked on a street late at night. Watching a loved one murdered in front of your eyes. Feeling the fire on your skin as your home burns. It's not just the pain of the experience, it's realizing afterward how your world has changed and that your life will never be the same. There are two basic human responses to an assault. I will protect myself. I will make the world a better place. The first deals with the risk of an attack. The second with your feelings about the world. The...

    As reported here, on March 30th Judge Legg granted a temporary stay of his ruling in Woollard v. Sheridan. In that case, he ruled that the “good and substantial reason” requirement to receive a Maryland handgun permit was unconstitutional. The temporary stay order set three deadlines for briefs to be filed. The first was an April 19th deadline for the state. The second is May 9th for the plaintiff’s response. And a final brief is due from the state on May 23rd. Following that, Judge Legg will issue his decision on whether or not a permanent stay is appropriate while...

    WASHINGTON (NNPA) – It was a telephone call that Tracy Martin, father of the 17-year-old African-American killed in Sanford, Fla. by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman, worried that he would never receive. Forty-five days after an unarmed Trayvon Martin had been killed while walking back to a home he was visiting after purchasing a bag of Skittles and a can of Arizona iced tea, Special Prosecutor Angela Corey called to notify Trayvon’s parents that Zimmerman had finally been arrested and charged with second-degree murder. “I was very emotional when I got the call from Ms. Corey,” Tracy Martin recounted. “I...

    ORLANDO -- The family of Trayvon Martin asked for an apology from their son’s shooter, George Zimmerman, and got one. But their attorney, Benjamin Crump, says it wasn’t good enough. Zimmerman, faces second degree murder charges and apologized during his bond hearing for shooting Trayvon Martin, but the family is unforgiving. “It’s real simple. When they called asking for this meeting the day before the bond hearing, we said this is not the appropriate time. And we certainly don’t think the bond hearing was the appropriate time because it’s very self-serving,” explained Crump. Attorney Ben Crump and the Martin family...

    Regardless of where you stand on the Trayvon Martin case, the fact is that this case is more than just a criminal case. It is about politics; racial, economic, social politics. The racial attacks are heating up, and let’s add in some facts which have been accidentally omitted but are quite pertinent to this case. First, Zimmerman is not just White, he is Hispanic. Second, Trayvon Martin was reported to have been beating down Zimmerman, striking several blows to the head, prior to the shooting. These two facts are not irrelevant. In fact, they are very relevant to the case...

    A record 5.4 million former workers and their dependents have signed up to receive federal disability payments since Obama took office. At 6% of the potential workforce now, the ratio of persons on disability has more than doubled since the Reagan Administration. Add this to the 70% increase in the number of persons getting food stamps since 2007 and it is clear that the 2008 election of Barack Obama may be ushering in some transformative changes in the way Americans live. “The notion that people want to work is the flaw in Republican thinking,” said Obama adviser David Axelrod. “Work...

    "Why would anyone want to give money to Northeastern University?" asks Holocaust survivor Helga Lustig. That's a question that many donors and parents may be asking, after watching a chilling new video that documents Northeastern's institutional anti-Semitism and its vicious attacks on survivors of Nazi genocide. Located in Boston, Northeastern is one of the country's largest private universities, and was recently ranked by Forbes as America's fourth-most entrepreneurial academy. Well, it's certainly entrepreneurial at taking money from well-meaning Jewish donors and then smugly using their funds to defame the Jewish people. In December 2010, Steven Stotsky wrote an article in...

Indeed, it seems more plausible with each new poll result, and each respective legislative and administrative failure or success, as the case may be. Today, an argument could be made that Brown is gaining as Obama is waning. These two left-leaning politicians, in so many ways so much alike, appear to be on divergent paths. If they continue ...

But worn out race baiting ploys were not going to guarantee the massive, black voter turn out the Manchurian Candidate would need in November. For the novelty of being the first black nominee and president was gone and finally, along with it, the decades-long effects of racial guilt implanted into the psyche of whites across the nation. Even with the 24/7 efforts of a dependably supportive media,...

    In 2008, Candidate Barack Obama promised that if elected he would address comprehensive immigration reform during his first year in office. Four years later, he has vowed to address reform at the beginning of his second term. But rather than admit this is just another campaign promise on which Mr. Obama failed to deliver, his re-election campaign's senior adviser blames a Republican "reign of terror." Appearing on CNN's State of the Union, David Axelrod claimed the president's failure was the result of a "monolithic opposition to everything the chief executive wants to do" and that "a lot of Republicans in...

It’s long been worried that Mitt would blow off the base of the party if elected, incidents like this do nothing to set these fears aside. Mitt Romney held a meeting in Scottsdale with top Republicans, hoping to convince the undecideds to throw their support behind him, as …. let’s face it …. his nomination is all but a fait accompli.

They are making their peace with Romney, but the potential danger, as I’ve noted before, is that their lackluster feelings for him will result in lower evangelical turnout...

    The basic credo of the New Age Movement, which looks to usher in a New World Order, is that a person creates their own reality according to what feels right for them. For example, a person may choose to be homosexual, bisexual, monogamous or polygamous and it's "okay" as long as it's "right for me." A person may choose whether or not to have an abortion. And so on. Of course, this is nonsense. For, as Dr. Dietrich von Hildebrand reminds us, "The truth of a proposition is essentially objective; a truth which as such would be valid for one...

    In capitulating to the drug cartels and appeasing the Mexican government the Obama Administration has ordered 900 National Guard troops to abandon their patrols against smugglers along the border as reported by Brian Bennett for the Los Angeles Times. In explaining the troop withdrawal to Congress last week Brian J. Lepore, a director at the U.S. Government and Accountability Office, said their presence on the southwest border "threatened to strain diplomatic relations with Mexico." The Mexican drug cartels move $50 billion in bulk product and bundled cash across the border each year. Although the Obama Administration insists that there is...

    To be genuinely outraged about something, you need to actually believe in something. Without principles, outrage is just tactical anger, or bullying in plainer language. Principles, values and codes are universal. That is if you are angry about a dog being mistreated by riding on top of a car, then you should at least be equally angry at dogs being eaten. If a man shooting another man after a confrontation and not being charged for it angers you, then it should anger you regardless of the color of his skin. For that matter if racism or sexism offends you, then...

When the West refused to supply 20%-enriched uranium for the small Tehran Research Reactor, where the Iranians produce medical isotopes, Iranian nuclear experts went ahead in June 2010 and fed their 5%-enriched uranium into the centrifuges to produce 20%-enriched uranium, by themselves. With a stockpile of 20%-enriched uranium, the Iranians would cut by more than half the time they needed to take the next enrichment step to weapons-grade uranium.

    www.FinancialSurvivalNetwork.com presents Teachers in Buffalo New York are up in arms. The State has mandated teachers receive evaluations in order for the schools to receive additional funding. The Teachers' Union has defied the State and refuses to allow evaluations. This all comes to you compliments of a debt based monetary system, which acts to perpetuate corrupt government schemes and ensures that union members get to line their pockets at retirement time, sometimes after just 25 years or less. New York will be completely insolvent in a very short time and will have to rely upon the Federal government to print...

    The U.S. military has become expert at controlling urban populations in Iraq – but why is the Department of Homeland Security building similar capabilities here?Unfortunately, the federal government’s war on freedom is a subject still dominated mostly by conspiracy theorists, end-of-the-worlders, and yes, crackpots who hold highly marginal and dismissible views. Fortunately, some of that is changing with the rise of “smart preppers.” I think most people concerned about liberty would appreciate an honest, probative look at actual plans and initiatives that federal authorities are now developing in earnest. Not wild conclusions based on dark conspiracy theories that make most...

    “Thus It Is Written, Fulfilled, and Proclaimed” (Luke 24:36-49)Do you want to know what the Bible is all about? Do you want to know what Jesus came to do? Do you want to know what the church’s preaching should emphasize? If so, then I’ve got good news for you. The answers to all three of these questions are given in today’s Gospel reading from Luke 24, specifically, in these verses: “Then Jesus said to them, ‘These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses...

    Statistics show a deep divide in opinions along racial lines regarding the killing of a black Florida teenager, Trayvon Martin, by George Zimmerman, who is of mixed ethnicity, white and Hispanic. Zimmerman has claimed self-defense, invoking the Sunshine State’s “Stand Your Ground” law which has also come under intense scrutiny in the wake of the incident. Reuters news service reported last week, 91% of blacks believe Martin was unjustly killed, while only 35% of whites concurred. Hispanics were in between at 59% according to polling numbers Reuters gathered by querying nearly 2,000 Americans. The disparity of views over Martin’s death...

    As preparations begin for the trial of neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman, MoveOn.org is ready to stir racial tensions on behalf of another victim in a different swing state. The liberal advocacy group on Saturday morning sent out a petition and plea for donations to its members, urging “Justice for Jasmine,” a black North Carolina teen apparently shot accidentally by a white man last year. In a letter to MoveOn.org members, Treka McMillian, Jasmine Thar’s godmother, alleged that Thar’s shooter, a “23-year-old Caucasian male,” was never brought to justice for the death of the “16-year-old African American” because investigators simply...
