  • Going shopping? N.J. wants to impose fees on bags, but critics say it won't stop littering

    Newark Star-Ledger ^ | June 21, 2018 | Michael Sol Warren
    In the battle against litter in the Garden State, plastic bags have been public enemy number one. Several municipalities, mostly along the Shore, have acted on their own to limit plastic bag use either through fees or bans. But for years, efforts for statewide regulation of the bags has failed to gain traction. Now, state lawmakers have decided that it is time to move forward. A new fee on plastic and paper shopping bags is being pushed through the state legislature: The bill cleared budget committees in both the Assembly and Senate on Tuesday and could be passed as early...

    Protesters confronted Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen inside a Mexican restaurant Tuesday night, chanting “Shame!” over the Trump administration’s policy of separating children from their parents at the border. In video posted on Twitter, protesters are seen heckling Nielson, sitting just feet away at a table with a guest, surrounded by her security. The protesters loudly called for the end of the controversial policy, and the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which is a unit under Homeland Security.

    NJ 101.5 ^ | June 13, 2018 | Mychal Simmons
    Six new gun-control laws were enacted Wednesday, including smaller ammunition magazine limits and new "red flag" laws designed to take guns from people deemed dangerous. Though New Jersey has among the nation’s most restrictive gun-control systems, most Democrats have been pushing for years to enact more, particularly in response to school shootings. Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald, D-Camden, recalled a Statehouse meeting he had in April 2013 with Connecticut parents whose children were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The cut in the maximum ammunition magazine, from 15 to 10 rounds, is one proposal that those parents emphasized. “We made...

    “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” announced President Ronald Reagan at the Berlin Wall, June 12, 1987. Begun after Lenin’s Bolshevik Revolution in 1917, the Soviet Union existed from 1922 to 1991. With its motto “Workers of the World, Unite!” the Soviet tactic was to train agitators, community organizers, labor organizers and agent provocateurs – provoking agents. These would organize people with grievances and stir up riots to subvert and “tear down” the existing government. When social chaos caused major domestic disruptions, the public would then willingly accept a new order. Unfortunately, rather than a wonderful utopian society of equality,...

    Tampa, United States: Global warming is expected to make vegetables significantly scarcer around the world, unless new growing practices and resilient crop varieties are adopted, researchers warned on Monday. By the end of this century, less water and hotter air will combine to cut average yields of vegetables -- which are crucial to a healthy diet -- by nearly one-third, said the report in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.A 7.2 Fahrenheit (4 Celsius) increase in temperature, which scientists expect by 2100 if global warming continues on its current trajectory, reduces average yields by 31.5 percent, said the...

    Needless to say, you don't need a license to own a gun, just like you don't need a license to engage in any of the other rights that are supposed to be protected under our Constitution, like exercising the Christian religion in public, free speech, freedom of the press or freedom of assembly. Here's just another way that Communist Democrats are attempting to regulate and restrict your God-given right to keep and bear arms. A bill introduced last week in the House by Representative Bobby Rush as H.R. 6024 and in the Senate as S.3002 by Senator Tammy Duckworth would...

"I find it very strange that President Trump has such a hard time getting along with the leaders of the world's major democracies but feels very comfortable with despots and authoritarian leaders like Putin, Xi Jinping, Duterte and Mohammad Bin Salman," Sanders said in a tweet.

    U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson introduced legislation this week that would create a national gun registry. Known as the “Crime Gun Tracing Modernization Act,” the bill would require ATF to set up a “searchable, computerized database” of all records pertaining to the sale, importation, production or shipment of firearms. The agency would be given three years to get the system up and running. “The fact that there is a law on the books that forces agents to comb through millions of files by hand is absolutely ridiculous,” said Nelson, a Florida Democrat.

    Mayor de Blasio’s controversial plan to change admissions to the city’s top specialized high schools would slash enrollment of white kids from 24 percent to 15 percent, based on Department of Education projections. Asian students would also take a big hit. Their enrollment in the eight elite schools would drop by more than half — from the current 62 percent to a projected 30 percent, the DOE says.

    San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa today called for a ban on gun shows at the Cow Palace in Daly City as a two-day gun show got underway at the venue. Crossroads of the West, a Utah-based company, is holding a gun show at the Cow Palace Saturday and Sunday. The show is taking place just four days after county supervisors voted unanimously in support of proposed state legislation that would ban gun shows at the Cow Palace. "The state should not profit from the sales of guns," Canepa said in a statement. "For 15 years this board has urged...

    Leftists have achieved perfection, and for once not only in their own minds. Yes – for the first time, modern leftists have managed to be perfectly wrong on every single issue. Let's just look at some major issues where one would think that any decent human being would get the right answer. #MeToo: All good people agree that real sexual harassment when someone uses power or force to coerce someone else to do something sexual is bad. Yet starting with Bill Clinton, the left has declared that sexual harassment is not bad if it's practiced by people who are sufficiently...

    Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel ^ | June 8, 2018 | Erika Pesantes
    They’re bogus 911 calls with real consequences— and public figures or celebrities are often the victims. This week, 18-year-old activist David Hogg in Parkland and fellow #NeverAgain student leader Cameron Kasky in West Delray were targeted by swatting calls, according to authorities in Broward and Palm Beach counties. Named after the response by police SWAT squads who respond to the calls, false 911 callers often describe emergencies involving barricaded gunmen or hostages in an attempt to draw heavily-armed officers. These fake 911 callers often spoof a victim’s phone, making it appear as though the victim is placing the emergency call.

    When Xiaomi first began making smartphones in 2011, it took many design cues – on both hardware and software – from Apple, so much so that the Chinese company was dismissed as an iPhone copycat maker by Western tech sites. The stigma of this stuck with the company for years (at least in English-language media), even though Xiaomi had developed a nice identity of its own by 2014. It wasn’t until two years later, though, when Xiaomi wowed the industry with its pioneering bezel-less Mi Mix that it finally shed that label. Old habits die hard, however. On Thursday Xiaomi...

    A Medieval Studies professor called the National Rifle Association a “terrorist organization” hours after the Santa Fe, Texas school shooting that killed 10 people Friday. “The NRA is a terrorist organization,” tweeted Matthew Gabriele, a tenured professor at Virginia Tech University. Tracy Vosburgh, a Virginia Tech spokesperson, told Fox News the anti-NRA tweet doesn’t represent the university. “Mr. Gabriele’s views are his and his alone,” Vosburgh said. “Any comment on his statement should come from him.” Gabriele declined to comment when reached, but he described himself in a tweetstorm as “a white dude with tenure who doesn’t give a s***”...

    Not that long ago, cigarettes were completely woven into American culture. The Marlboro Man, posters telling us that “more doctors smoke Camels than any other cigarette,” even the armrests on planes and all our cars were designed for smokers. And now? Not so much. Can it work like that with guns? (snip) I grew up surrounded by cigarette smoke. My dad smoked. So did practically everyone else I knew. But my kids? Totally different. They saw someone smoking in a restaurant while we were traveling abroad recently and they freaked out, like they’d witnessed a beheading. Inconceivable in their world.

    Liberals always seem to be declaring they only want bans or restrictions on certain types of guns. Added to that is their declaration of support for the Second Amendment. However, once in a while, one of those liberals lets their mask drop and makes their true intention known. Such a person is the editor-at-large Dave Holmes of Esquire magazine who flat out declared in the wake of the school shootings in Texas on Friday that he wants to ban all guns. Here is Holmes saying what most other liberals are careful to keep under wraps in Okay, Now I Actually...
