    Constitutional Rights ^ | 10/23/2015 | Larry Ward
    The New York Times has a Front Page hit piece out on me (Larry Ward) and my PACs. Here's what the story didn't say after four very long interviews with me...As you read this ask yourself, why are Conservative PACs the only ones ever attacked like this??? Most importantly - PAC activity is judged by the media and the Establishment by how much money is gives to candidates. I rarely give to candidates because I prefer to spend our resources fighting OUTSIDE not INSIDE Congress. I'd prefer to work with the grassroots and not institutional roots. Our issue campaign dollars...

    Rep. Kevin McCarthy is not even Speaker of the House yet, but there is already a group ready to fire him. A group of prominent right-leaning organizations formed a coalition Wednesday dubbed "Fire Kevin McCarthy," pledging to remove the California Republican should he be chosen to replace John Boehner when he retires at the end of next month. "Having worked with Kevin McCarthy in the House, I'll admit he's a friendly guy," former Georgia Rep. Paul Broun said in a statement announcing the formation of the coalition. "But we need a dramatic change in House leadership — we can't afford...

    Constitutional Rights PAC Chairman Larry Ward today issued the following statement regarding Planned Parenthood harvesting the brain of a living baby: “The latest video released by the Center for Medical Progress further suggests that Planned Parenthood is a criminal organization, comfortable with ending life and breaking the law. “Constitutional Rights PAC calls on the San Jose, California Police Department to immediately investigate Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda Clinic in response to the testimony of Holly O’Donnell who claims the clinic murdered and harvested the brain of a living baby after a failed abortion. “The taking of innocent human life is...

    As Jeb Bush announced his bid for the Republican presidential nomination Monday, a conservative political action committee released an open letter urging Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano to run as a third-party candidate if Bush and Hillary Clinton are their parties’ nominees. “The Democrat and Republican brands have become ‘two wings of the same bird of prey,’ as you yourself have pointed out, which is why the American People deserve an alternative choice in the coming presidential election,” reads the letter from Constitutional Rights Political Action Committee Chairman Larry Ward. The letter concludes, “Above all, we need a President...

    Special Operations Speaks PAC, an organization to educate Americans about threats to the United States, has started a petition to impeach Hillary Clinton – and so far, nearly 31,000 have signed. “Fact is, congressional precedent dictates that all elected officials remain subject to impeachment and disqualification from holding office even after resignation,” SOS said, on its website. As such: the PAC says Clinton must go. Just in time for the 2016 election, hear Hillary Clinton say she would NOT run for president, in “Hillary Unhinged” by Thomas Kuiper.

The ad buy is small, under $10,000, said spokesman Larry Ward.

    "It's obvious that we're seeing a concerted and coordinated effort to smear Rob Maness," said Michael Byrne, Maness' campaign manager. "Roger Villere and the LAGOP are doing the bidding of the D.C. Republican-establishment and using Chicago-style tactics to coerce young, enthusiastic, conservatives to say things that they have privately admitted they don't really believe." The Maness campaign said Ward was pressured into switching from Maness to Cassidy so the Republican Party would support his candidacy for school board. Ward sent a Facebook message to Maness supporter Shawn Cronan on Oct. 10 that read: "Shawn, as you know I am running...

Mexican prosecutors originally charged Tahmooressi with gun trafficking and he was taken to a Tijuana prison where...

    A Republican Senate hopeful in Virginia has turned the tables on his Democratic competition, claiming that his political foe is waging a war on women — by supporting abortion.

The Virginia-based Committee to Draft Judge Andrew Napolitano for President announced last week that it had gathered almost 100,000 signatures and 36,000 likes on Facebook urging the libertarian to run as a Republican.

    U.S. Senate candidate Rob Maness (R-Madisonville, LA) today launched a comparison campaign to show the contrasts between himself and the other candidates in the 2014 race. Showing the similar – and often identical – voting histories of incumbent Democrat Mary Landrieu, Republican Congressman Bill Cassidy and himself, Maness identifies Landrieu as “Blue Mary,” Cassidy as “Red Mary” and himself as “Quite Contrary,” illustrating that Cassidy’s political record makes him little more than a Republican version of the Democrat who currently holds the seat.

    It’s a little-known fact that about 30% of returning soldiers are diagnosed with PTSD. These brave men and women, mentally scarred from their service to our country, deserve nothing less than our unwavering support. Instead, they are now in the crosshairs of the gun control lobby. With the VA’s existing massive information sharing with NICS, we already have a precedent for large-scale revocation of veteran’s rights. All it takes is for one of Eric Holder’s decrees to include PTSD, and suddenly one of the most passionate, patriotic segments of Americans will be labeled a danger to society. Ask yourself: Do...

    California rang in the New Year by placing certain truck engines, trailers, tires and even entire vehicles on its environmental out list — requiring motor carriers to spend tens of thousands of dollars on new equipment that may never meet the state's ambitious objectives. The new rules apply to trucks registered in other states — and even other countries. “The state is forcing certain trucking companies and operators to make investments that are going to add cost with no return with regard to fuel efficiency, and therefore no impact on their desired policy operative,” said Steve Laskowski, senior vice president...

Andrew Cuomo, Michael Bloomberg, Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel and other gun grabbing politicians are protected with secret service and/or security details that carry guns. If their argument is right, that guns kill people, it is more than appropriate that they disarm their security and themselves to demonstrate that they can live the way they are both proposing and legislating that the rest of the 99%, (not in the political 1% elite) live.

    Obamacare doesn't go far enough. The government needs to replace private insurance companies in a complete takeover of health care. That’s the system California’s union leaders are pressuring Democrats to create, now that they enjoy supermajorities in both chambers of the state Legislature. And their influence is “tremendous,” according to former Sen. Gloria Romero, D-Los Angeles, who served as Senate majority leader from 2001 to 2008. “California Teachers Association’s former president referred to them as the fourth, co-equal branch of government,” she said. “Nobody has the political and money war chest that they do.” Read more:

    Oddly enough, perhaps the biggest loser in last week’s Republican debacle wasn’t even on the ballot. He didn’t shake a single hand, nuzzle the napes of any newborn babes or promise eager voters pie in the sky or peace on Earth. His name was Karl Rove. And all he actually did was squander a staggering $300 million by backing candidates who turned winnable races into laughable routs, producing tepid ads transforming would-be zealots into couch potatoes and firmly establishing himself as the political world’s pre-eminent empty-suit analyst. Perhaps even worse, he set himself up as the clearinghouse for wealthy conservative...

    Millions of people are familiar with the South Korean music video "Gangnam Style," credited by the Guiness Book of World Records as the most liked in YouTube history. The song — which features the refrain "Hey, sexy lady!" — has inspired countless parodies. Now Saudi Arabia adds itself to the list. There's only one problem: The video has no ladies. While it shouldn't surprise anyone that a country that is planning a seperate city for working women would omit women from a music video, the optics of "Saudia Gangnam" speak volumes.

    On a typical work day in San Francisco, at least 27 private employers are picking up workers in shuttle buses — complete with cushioned seats and WiFi — at more than 200 stops across the city. The transit option is a booming private enterprise that reduces traffic congestion and air pollution. Some in the city want to snuff it out, San Francisco-style, with government regulations and fees. San Francisco Supervisor John Avalos wants to eliminate the cushy private shuttles and charge employers to use the Municipal Transit Agency's spartan buses, according to the San Francisco Examiner. “Their rapid growth makes...

The cartoon depicts Obama as a schoolchild, president of the student council; he has nothing but scorn for a group of students training for military service. Then he spots a girl being shot at by a group of thugs. He promptly orders the other students to do something about it, and after they do, he takes full credit – and actively spikes a football.

    Americans will head to the polls this November with a degree of partisanship and political rancor that has not been felt for 25 years, according to the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press. Seventy-one percent of registered Republicans and 58 percent of Democrats reportedly fault their respective leaders for failing to uphold core party principles. The chasm between Republicans and Democrats over the government’s role in society – providing a place for the homeless to sleep, for example, or guaranteeing citizens enough food for their families – grows wider.

    We libertarians love to rail about government, and rightly so. But, tyrannical government can’t survive if people refuse to comply with its illegitimate demands. Ultimately, the actions of government reflect the willingness of the people it oppresses to comply with its dictates. Ultimately, we have no one to blame but ourselves if we continue to live in tyranny. This uncomfortable fact is perfectly illustrated in the newly released movie Compliance, which tells the chilling story of just how far ordinary people will go to obey a figure of authority.

    The former Marine who was forcibly placed in a psychiatric ward by government officials who didn’t like his Facebook postings will sue for unlawful arrest, according to his attorneys. “We are definitely going to move forward with a lawsuit,” said Nisha Whitehead, assistant to the president at the Rutherford Institute, the nonprofit civil rights firm defending Brandon Raub.

    Missile tests. Espionage. Territorial claims and an endless quest for oil. Across the board, China is positioning itself for global dominance. The Middle Kingdom continues to expand its influence and leverage its gains by purchasing U.S. debt. While our elected leaders bicker, communist China works to take pole position as the world's top superpower. Read more:
  • Kuhner: Biden dangerously detached from reality

    Vice President Joseph R. Biden is mentally unstable, and it’s time for Republicans to point it out. For years, Mr. Biden has been making outrageous comments that reveal not only his low intelligence, but also a dangerous detachment from reality. Yet the liberal media refuse to hold him accountable. Instead, their rationalization boils down to one excuse: Joe will be Joe. He may make bizarre, even ludicrous, statements, but the press corps believes Mr. Biden is on the side of the angels. His heart is in the right place. He is a trendy progressive. In their view, this is all...

    A former Marine who was forced into a psychiatric ward for anti-government Facebook postings has been freed from the hospital by a Virginia circuit court ruling handed down Thursday. Judge Allan Sharrett dismissed the case against Brandon Raub, 26, who had been detained by government officials in Richmond, Va., and transferred to a VA hospital in Salem, Va. The judge called the petition to continue Raub's forced detention “so devoid of any factual allegations that it could not be reasonably expected to give rise to a case or controversy.” Read more:

    Is Brandon Raub a political prisoner of the Obama Administration? That is the impression you receive if you talk to members of an organization called Special Operations Speaks. In a press release the group states, “Brandon Raub, a 26-year-old former Marine who completed tours of Iraq and Afghanistan and lives in Chesterfield, Va., was recently arrested and forcibly committed to a psychiatric facility for mental evaluation by a court based solely on controversial Facebook postings, which took the form of song lyrics, political messages and virtual card games.”

    The attorney for the former Marine who was forced into a psychiatric ward for anti-government Facebook postings filed a petition Wednesday claiming law enforcement did not uphold Virginia laws for involuntary detentions. “The law requires that within four hours of detaining someone, you have to have a magistrate write a petition for a temporary restraining order,” said John Whitehead, an attorney with the Rutherford Institute, the Virginia-based civil rights firm that is defending the ex-Marine. “They didn’t do that. That didn’t happen.” Read more:

    Yesterday, Fox News’ “The Five” ran a segment on the military members who are taking action against President Barack Obama and his administration for their deliberate, continuing national-security leaks that are endangering the lives of the military men and women who serve and protect the United States of America. In that segment, liberal smear artist Bob Beckel defended the Obama White House’s intentional release of highly sensitive and highly classified security information: "The idea to suggest that the President of the United States would leak intelligence information, jeopardizing people in the field is close to treason," Beckel said. “If I...

    Part One of Two Detective Michael Zullo is surprised to say the least. He is chief investigator for Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse looking into the authenticity of President Barack Obama’s long-form birth certificate. At a recent press conference, he presented his evidence, which he says points to forgery. He expected the media to follow up with questions about the evidence. What he got was unabashed hostility. “I really didn’t expect them to come out of the gate attacking us as they did,” Mr. Zullo said. Read more:
